Blickling Hall, Aylsham, Norfolk- Birthplace of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII, and the mother of Elizabeth I.

The house of Blickling seen today was built on the ruins of the old
Boleyn property in the reign of James I, by Sir Henry Hobart,  who
bought Blickling from Robert Clere in 1616. The architect of Hatfield

It is said that every year on this day May 19, (the day of Anne Boleyn’s execution),
her headless ghost arrives at Blickling in a carriage driven by an
equally headless coachman. But she hasn’t lost her head completely in

Blickling was voted the most haunted house in Britain in a National
Trust survey in October 2007.

Blickling Hall has been in the care of the National Trust since 1940.
