Introduction

What’s England without its long-standing love and appreciation for its gardens and floristry and in Norfolk, the flower show you want to showcase your vegetables, fruit, flowers and floral art is the Sandringham Flower Show. At its core, it’s a classic flower show through and through with a nod to the military with a military band, equestrian shows and gardening club competitions.

It’s a place to see the fruits of the English soil and the event has a long tradition. The very first edition was held back in 1881, almost 140 years ago, and this fact places the Sandringham Flower Show among the longest running flower shows in the world. Part of its lasting importance is the fact that it’s held on the grounds of Sandringham House, which used to be the country residence for the Royal Family. Funding from the flower show goes into local charities, which further help Norfolk grow and flourish.

Logistics

The Sandringham Flower Show arrives at the height of English summer towards late July and lasts for a single day, where thousands of visitors come to experience show gardens and produce. The show grounds open early in the morning at 09:30 am and close at 17:00 pm and the event takes place at Sandringham Park close to Sandringham House and Sandringham Church. Every year, the organiser (Sandringham Estate Cottage Horticultural Society Trust) sets out to add more events to the day’s proceedings, thus making Sandringham an even more popular destination in Norfolk.

If you’re not travelling by car, there are other ways to get to the showgrounds easily. Bus 35 has a stop directly at the Country Park and connect to King's Lynn Bus Station, which is also serviced by the National Express coach service.
