About Ickworth

Ickworth makes an exception day out, with plenty to see for all the family. The Rotunda was built in the 18th century to house the treasures and artefacts collected by the 4th Earl of Bristol on his grand tours of Europe, and is quite something. The rather eccentric Hervey family continued to add to the collection for the next 200 years, and also built one the very first Italianate gardens in this country. Having explored the gardens and parkland, visitors can travel back to the 1930s to learn about domestic service, via the restored servants’ basement.

Where is Ickworth located?

Ickworth is just 3 miles from Bury St Edmunds, in Suffolk.

What style of garden is Ickworth?

The Italianate garden at Ickworth is one of the earliest examples of this style, and there are 1800 acres of parkland and woods to explore, along with a walled garden, where much of the produce used in the cafes is grown.

What can guests enjoy at Ickworth?

Regular events are held throughout the year, such as Living History days, Cooks in the Kitchen days and Conservation in Action events. A wander through the parkland is a joy at any time of the year, and visitors are welcome to picnic wherever they please.

Ickworth also has a Historic House:

The Top Twenty Places to see Snowdrops by Natalie French

"It’s that time of year when the oak walk at Ickworth Park erupts in a carpet of winter white snowdrops and the bright yellow glow of aconites - whilst the scent of honey wafts from the large Galanthus’s arnott snowdrops that grace Geraldine’s and Erskine’s walks. Once you’ve indulged all your senses, warm up and feast in the west wing restaurant."
