Ickworth Bat Walk

The Ickworth estate is home to many bats, this guided walk is a brilliant opportunity to see and hear some of them from experts.

  • Booking essential

Start the evening with a chat to our Bat experts at the Porters Lodge to discover the difference between the calls of a Pipistrelle and a Daubenton's; learn about their habitat and what we can do to improve it. We will then spend an hour outside discovering where the bats may be.
