A landscape park and woodland garden designed in 1812 by Humphry Repton and one of his most outstanding achievements

Sheringham Park is a landscape park and gardens near the town of Sheringham, Norfolk, England. The park surrounds Sheringham Hall and has a grid reference of TG133416. The Hall is privately occupied, but Sheringham Park is in the care of the National Trust and open to visitors.

The park was designed by Humphry Repton. Abbot and Charlotte Upcher bought the Estate in 1811, and successive generations of the Upcher family did much to develop the estate, the Hall and the park, as well as building a school.

There are fine mature woodlands and a large variety of rhododendrons and azaleas. Several overlook towers provide good views over the gardens, and of the nearby coast and surrounding countryside. A garden temple was constructed in the Park in 1975.

Access is from the A148 road between Sheringham and Holt. A car park, visitors centre and cafe are available near the entrance. Waymarked paths through the estate link the gardens and visitors centre to the coast, and to the Weybourne Station on the North Norfolk Railway, a preserved steam railway.
