Details

Enjoy the treasures within Ickworth; Georgian silver, Regency furniture, Old Masters and family portraits by famous artists such as Gainsborough and Hogarth. Explore the Servants’ quarters in the basement under the Rotunda which have been restored to what they were like in the 1930s and discover the stories below the stairs.

Stroll around the earliest Italianate Gardens in the UK which includes a Mediterranean Temple Garden and a magical Victorian Stumpery. Or why not go further? Wander down to our Walled Garden dating to Tudor times. Perhaps you are feeling more adventurous and want to follow one of the many trails and cycle rides into the wider park spanning 1800 acres.

Spend a day at Ickworth, there’s so much to see indoors and outdoors and great visitor facilities including ample parking, a café, golf buggy service to the main house and National Trust gift and plant shop.

Each year Ickworth hosts a number of special events including our annual Wool Fair in June and Wood Fair in October and in December, the servant quarters are transformed for our magical Christmas Sparkle event, with Ickworth being visited by Father Christmas himself. This year Ickworth will host a number of special exhibitions and tours within the House and wider estate, including Living History Days uncovering the people from Ickworth's past and specialty walks within the gardens.
