The colourful heights of Spring

Tulips in flower in the walled garden at Ickworth

The sun is finally shining and Ickworth is alive with flowers and wildlife creating a haven on a long sunny day. Take a stroll around the gardens and parkland to capture the views, you'll be spoilt for choice!

Make the most of those longer days with a chance to discover the changing seasons of Ickworth with monthly specialty walks highlighting the best of the estate.  

Ickworth has always showcased the very best in traditional country skills and craftsmanship, a tradition we continue to this day. Our Country Estate Fayre on 29 & 30 June celebrates those skills, including the use of animals on the estate.

" A large herd of deer was kept in the Park, also about 200 wild Shetland ponies...Around 1500 sheep - various breeds and rabbits everywhere. A lot of wildlife"
- John Barkham
