Advice for visiting Sandringham

Advice for visiting Sandringham

People visiting Sandringham to pay their respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II are advised traffic control measures are currently in place.

Buckingham Palace announced yesterday that Her Majesty passed away peacefully at Balmoral in Scotland and since then, hundreds of people have attended the Norfolk royal residence to lay flowers.

In anticipation of well-wishers wanting to pay their respects at Sandringham, a one-way traffic system has been put in place around the estate to make sure people can access and leave the area easily.

Police officers on road blocks will be able to guide members of the public to car parks, where from there they can walk on the estate and towards the Norwich Gates where floral tributes are being laid.
