The park was designed by Humphrey Repton in 1812. Humphrey was the architect for the grounds of many great country house gardens. Sheringham Park was one of his favourites; he described it as being his “favourite and darling child in Norfolk”.
The park is most famous for its rhododendrons and azaleas, but there are many other species of trees and shrubs to be found.
The main entrance and car park is just off the A148 Cromer to Holt road. Parking is £4.80 for cars, free for National Trust members.
There is a café and visitors centre within Wood Farm Barn. Access for pushchairs and wheelchairs is good and mobility scooters are available.
There is access on foot from Upper Sheringham down Park Road. Please note that parking is restricted around that area. For those interested in walking further there are waymarked paths from the park to the coast and the North Norfolk Railway station at Weybourne.
