Sandringham Castle

G'day from Norfolk,  England
 
Sandringham Estate is the Norfork Retreat for the British Royal Family and is the place Queen Elizabeth and her family celebrate Christmas
 
A beautiful historic building set amongst the gardens
 
 
Several rooms are open to the public at this time but no photographs allowed inside, however, the rooms were lovely and set as they would be when the family is in residence
 
the holly in the garden is preparing for Christmas
 
 
Beautiful lake and gardens
today was overcast and cool but not too wet to enjoy a lovely walk
 

Autumn colours showing in the gardens....... the residence in the background

 
Late flowering crocus plants....
 
 
I took this picture of the family tree - my maiden name was Worsley - I am reliabily informed this is a cousin of a cousin!!!
 
 
 
Righto, Gotto Go, my brush with royalty is done for the day

  2. What a beautiful place, can imagine spending a week there and just relaxing and strolling on the grounds. I supposedly have ties to the royal family too, so I guess you and i are related, lol.
