Celebrate the long summer days at Ickworth... embrace nature on one of our walks exploring the wider estate, enjoy al fresco entertainment at our open air theatre events and get crafty with our summer of children's crafts and activities.

Find the perfect spot at Ickworth this summer to enjoy family fun, let your imaginations run wild and your children too.

At Ickworth it’s easy to leave the hustle and bustle behind you and escape into the parkland. Head to the Walled Garden and the lawn just outside the summer house to enjoy your picnic with a view across the Canal Lake. With so much to explore across the estate there is fun for all the family in every area.

Once famed for it's grand summer celebrations, Ickworth is the perfect place to continue (or start!) the tradition of enjoying imaginative and innovative outdoor theatre performances with a stunning backdrop.

Dont worry about the great British weather we also have plenty of activities inside to keep the whole family entertained. Have a go at our seasonal children's crafts in the summer holidays then explore with our new children's trail and discover Ickworth's animal friends on an adventure throughout the house. Visit on one of our living history days to see the 1930's servant's quarters brought to life with the servants going about their jobs of the past.
