Queen Victoria bought Sandringham in 1863 for her eldest son, the future Edward VII, and has been used as a private royal residence ever since. It is most famous as The Queen’s Christmas retreat, a tradition that only began in the 1980s, when Windsor Castle – the usual Royal Family Christmas location – needed repair work.

Sandringham House is located in Norfolk on a 20,000 acre estate, with The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge owning Anmer Hall, just a few miles away from the main house.
