BLICKLING ESTATE, NORFOLK

Norwich Printing Museum is a rarity being one of the few remaining working printing museums in the UK.

The museum was born from a collection of printing machinery, type and bindery equipment from the early days of Jarrold & Sons Ltd, which was first established in Suffolk in 1815.

​Our new fully-working Museum in Residence opened at the Blickling Estate in July 2021 with the aim of exhibiting part of our unique collection of printing machinery and artefacts and to pass on the traditional skills of the compositor, printer and bookbinder through regular demonstrations and specialist courses.
