Explore acres of space, woodland, wildlife, and a stunning architectural oddity, all with a story to match.

See how one eccentric man's passion for art, Italy and for having a party led to the creation of this remarkable house and its renowned collection of paintings, portraits, furniture and other treasures.

Through our Ickworth Lives project, learn about the servants and workers who kept this country estate running and share their memories. Discover what 'upstairs downstairs' domestic life was really like in our innovative displaying of the servants' quarters in the Rotunda basement.

Let your imagination run riot as you stroll in one of England's finest, and possibly earliest, Italianate gardens, and explore the intriguing Stumpery.

Go wild, amble or ramble in miles of beautiful woodland walks or even bring a bike.
