Ickworth House and grounds [3] by Michael Dibb
Ickworth House and grounds [3]

From the entrance gateway to Ickworth Park the drive heads towards the house. The neoclassical Ickworth House is the centre of an estate of almost 750 acres of which 33 acres are gardens and pleasure grounds. The house was built between 1795 and 1829 in stuccoed brick. There is a domed rotunda, 105 feet high with substantial flanking wings linked by corridors. The central entrance portico has four Ionic columns. Owned by the Hervey family, the Marquess of Bristol, the estate was given to the National Trust in 1956 in lieu of death duties. The east wing, once the family’s private apartments is now the Ickworth Hotel. The west wing was unfinished until 2006 when it was renovated and opened as a centre for conferences and events. The house is listed, grade I, with details at: LinkExternal link. The grounds are on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens, grade II*, with much history and detail at: LinkExternal link
