Ickworth House is opening its doors once again in time for Christmas. Experience the entrance hall and state rooms dressed for Christmas to get you in the festive mood.

11 - 22 December | 11am - 2.30pm

Get ready to explore the Entrance Hall, Drawing room, Library and Dining room, fully decorated with festive displays. Enjoy the sights and smells of Christmas, see the rooms set as if for use by the 4th Marquess and Marchioness of Bristol and their family, in the early 1930’s. 

Presents will be being wrapped, the table will be laid with festive treats, candles will be twinkling and carols will be playing on the wireless. Don't miss the magnificent tree in the Entrance Hall, brimming with presents, which would have been destined for children from the families who work on the estate.
