Where you can visit 

We recommend you book in advance for visits to our places, especially at busy times such as weekends and bank holidays. However, where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking isn't always necessary at Ickworth, Melford Hall or Sutton Hoo. See what's open near you.

Places you can visit

Willy Lott's House as seen in the Hay Wain


Flatford is a great place to start a walk. The many different routes will take you from village to village and across peaceful countryside. Whatever route you take, you'll discover lovely views, many of which inspired the artist John Constable. Why not refuel with a hot cuppa and tasty treat from our tea room by the river as the sun sinks low across the meadows?
