The colourful heights of Spring

The seasonal wildflower meadow 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!

Ickworth has always showcased the very best in traditional country skills and craftsmanship, a tradition we continue to this day. Our Country Estate Fayre 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

Join us in exploring the role of Theodora as the 4th Marchioness of Bristol, as we display - for the first time - her coronation robes. Her robes, which have been lovingly repaired will be shown on the Landing in the House from the 15 June.
