Spotted in gardens and parks across Norfolk from late February through to April, daffodil displays are a symbol of spring and new beginnings.

With their bright yellow petals and golden trumpets, here are some of the best National Trust sites in the county to enjoy daffodil displays during spring 2024.

1. Blickling Estate

Head to the West Garden to take in the soft pinks and whites of the magnolia trees surrounded by a variety of daffodil species.

For a longer stroll, follow the 1.8-mile Lake Walk for a daffodil display on the bank behind the Temple, before heading to the Muddy Boots or Stables cafés.

2. Felbrigg Hall

Enjoy the scenic spot from a nearby picnic bench or admire the seasonal display up close.

Pockets of the bright yellow blooms can be found behind the West Garden and in the meadow by Walled Garden. 

3. Oxburgh Estate

Springtime in the gardens at Oxburgh Estate is home to a daffodil display which stretches across the North Terrace, the Wilderness, My Lady’s Wood and Home Covert.

Oxburgh Hall provides a dramatic backdrop to the sea of yellow flower heads. 

After a meander through the spring flowers, pop on over to the Servants Hall tearoom and enjoy refreshments indoors in the sunshine of the courtyard.
