This week our travels took us to Sandringham Estate (above), Dersingham Open Gardens (left), an art exhibition at Terrington St Clement (below), and the Olive Branch Community Cafe on Hillington Square, King’s Lynn.

At Sandringham the magnificent Rhododendrons were in full bloom. Our photo was taken from Princess’s Drive, a little known scenic road that winds it’s way through the heart of the estate.

Zoom in on the map here to see the exact location of the one-way road.

We enjoyed walking around the open gardens and art studios at Dersingham , which were part of the Dersingham in May event. Dersingham Pottery is well worth a visit. You can get more information and check their opening times at www.dersinghampottery.co.uk.

We were sent some information about Norfolk Trails:

“The Norfolk Trails network brings together over 1,200 miles of walks, cycle and bridle routes throughout our beautiful county.

“Whether you are walking the dog, enjoying a stroll with family and friends, looking for a peaceful break away from it all, or a dedicated walker looking for a challenge, the Norfolk Trails offer something for everyone.”

The Norfolk trails website can be found here.

Finally, a couple of other local websites to tell you about. Festival Too have launched their summer programme with an exciting line-up of artists. You can view their revamped website at www.festivaltoo.co.uk.

We also discovered that King’s Lynn Town Hall has it’s own fascinating website which you can view at www.kingslynntownhall.com
