The West Wing, never completed during the building of Ickworth House, was developed in 2005 by Sodexo Prestige in partnership with the National Trust. The Wing comprises several venues.

You could reserve a marquee space for larger functions, and hire the restaurant and Orangery for special occasions. Sodexo Prestige offers an unparalleled service for a range of events, from weddings and civil partnerships to conferences and concerts.
