6 if us (4 adults, 2 kids) really enjoyed our day out here. Didn't manage to explore it all as so much to see, gardens, woodland walks, house, church etc. Will definitely be back at some point. Can thoroughly recommend.

Arrived here today(Sunday)and found it to be very very busy. Having spent a number of hours looking around the house and gardens I understand why. I especially liked the people (volunteers ?.) who were playing the parts of servants throughout the building. Mostly downstairs. This...More

Stately Home tucked away in deepest Suffolk, well preserved House in well managed Grounds, perfect for walking your Dog tho Woofs arent allowed in the House. Regular Guided Tours or explore alone. Two Cafe's one inside & one out. Ran by the National Trust.

Many years ago we lived (for 25years) in Ickworth Park and cared for it as our own. Today we went back for possibly our last visit simply for lunch in the restaurant as my husband is elderly and unable to walk unaided. We had his...More

Travelled to Ickworth House and Gardens near Bury St Edmunds. I adore walled kitchen gardens, the fabulous potential for an abundance of fruit and veggies, and this is the biggest I've seen. It is awaiting restoration back to a kitchen garden, but is still interesting....More

Ickworth House is a grand place for a great day out. Great architecture. The Rotunda basement has been restored as it would have been at the turn of the century and you can experience living history with various activities. There are fine sculptures and paintings...More

Whilst visiting Bury St Edmunds we visited Ickworth House. The house is lovely with lots to see. The servants area is amazing to visit. Shame it rained as would have liked to see more of the gardens.

Interesting architecture. Very few items of interest on display. Poorly maintained by National Trust. Disappointing not to be able to see upstairs due to lack of ‘volunteers ‘.

Some areas are suitable. There's an under the stairs tour which is really good. I think I recall a lift. The staff are very helpful so if there's a way they will organise it for you. There's a lovely café.

No it's not free as it comes under National Trust and usual entrance prices
