One man’s eccentric passion for Italy is the centrepiece for this beautiful parkland, with Ickworth House nestled in a predominantly green landscape.
An Italianate Palace in the heart of an ancient deer park. Formal gardens, pleasure grounds, rolling Suffolk landscape and woodlands invite gentle strolls or long walks, runs, bike rides and picnics. The Italianate Garden mirrors the architecture of the house, whilst also encasing an idiosyncratic Victorian stumpery, contrasting light and shade.
The impressive Rotunda, a magnificent showcase commissioned by the 4th Earl of Bristol, is home to one of the finest silver collections in Europe, family portraits by Gainsborough and Reynolds, works by Titian and Velázquez, and Neoclassical sculpture including Flaxman’s ‘Fury of Athamus’. Below stairs, the Servants’ Quarters recreate domestic service through the stories and memories of those who lived here.
After walking in the tranquil parkland, experience 1930s domestic service in the restored servants’ basement, sharing the real stories and memories of former staff who kept this country estate running
