Sandringham Estate

Sandringham is one of the most popular tourist attractions for one main reason – If you’re lucky you might be able to spot the Queen there.

Her Majesty normally heads to the Sandringham Estate for Christmas, though for the past two years, she has stayed at Windsor Castle due to Covid.

You can normally see the royals go to St Mary Magdalene Church on the estate on Christmas Day while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s country residence is nearby at Anmer Hall.

Holkham Hall

Although Holkham Hall (and the estate in general) isn’t necessarily a massive hotspot for celebrities, you might see it appear quite often if you’re watching TV.

The Holkham Estate is used regularly for TV shows and films, recently becoming part of its own Channel 4 documentary entitled ‘Christmas at Holkham Hall’.

Films shot there include ‘Shakespeare in Love’, ‘The Duchess’ and more recently ‘Annihilation’ – all of which were mainly filmed on the beach.
