Explore a 500-year-old stately home in Norfolk on a festive walking tour this winter.

Oxburgh Hall, located just eight miles from Swaffham, is a moated brick-built mansion that dates back to 1482. 

On December 18, Meet Watton is running a tour of the hall and its stunning grounds while it is lit in magical decorations for Christmas

The hall and gardens have been occupied by the Bedingfield family for the last 500 years. 

The home's ownership was passed to the National Trust in 1952 and the public was invited inside for the first tours.

But the upcoming event by Meet Watton will add an inviting community aspect.

The group will tread the 2.75-mile path together before enjoying some lunch in the tearoom and popping into the gift shop. 

Jane Jewell, the group's organiser, said: "Meet Watton is a friendly group for anyone over 18 to meet others and enjoy social events together.

"We hold events all over Norfolk, Suffolk and beyond, including walks, lunches, day trips, historic visits, ten-pin bowling, behind-the-scenes visits, picnics, trips to the cinema and lots of other fun activities."

The Oxburgh Hall walk will begin at 10.30am and costs £10 for adults but is free to National Trust members.
