Explore Ickworth this New Year

Dust away the cobwebs and explore everything Ickworth has to offer this New Year. From winter welly walks through carpets of snowdrops to half term fun and activities, there is something for everyone.

Wander around Ickworth for great views on a crisp winter day and follow the path along Lady Geraldine's Walk, as well as The Albana Walk, where snowdrops are complemented by the golden glow of aconites. If it is carpets of white you are looking for, Ickworth is the place to visit.

To walk off the Christmas indulgence we have speciality walks led by staff and volunteers on the first Wednesday of each month. In January be inspired by the story of the Ickworth Estate during WW1 and the impact it had on the people who lived and worked here. Whilst in February be led around the best areas on the estate by our Outdoors Manager, Sean Reid, and see our beautiful historic Snowdrop bulbs.

This February half term enjoy a variety of children's craft activities and games in the comfort of our West Wing Gallery. Make and take home some fun spring time crafts that your children will love. Of course you can always head outside to enjoy our play area, den building area and magical stumpery.
