Growing the Roots of Ickworth

Delve into the craftsmanship behind Ickworth this autumn, and celebrate the roots of our fantastic estate.

This autumn we will be showcasing the artistry of wood - what it made, how it helped build Ickworth and what we use it for now. Today the estate and our collection are cared for by skilled conservation teams as well as a dedicated team of volunteers.

Explore the world both indoors and outdoors, from our Bound to Last exhibition in the House focusing on the history of book binding to venturing outdoors and discovering the Life of an Ickworth Oak with our ranger volunteers.

Families can take part in acorn and conker collecting and become Ickworth 'Little Rangers, as well as completing an outdoor trail around the Geraldine's Walk as children are encouraged to learn all about our resident bats making their homes at Ickworth.
