Wickmere is a quiet hamlet made up of a few cottages built to provide accommodation for the workers on the Wolterton Estate, the family seat of the younger brother of the then Prime Minister, Robert Walpole. Wickmere is close to Felbrigg Hall and within walking distance of Blickling Hall, two National Trust properties which are well worth a visit, both offering extensive woodland and lakeside walks as well as the houses themselves. Other local attractions include the North Norfolk Steam Railway, The Shire Horse Centre, Seal Trips from Morston and the Norfolk Broads.
