Ickworth House, Park and Gardens - National Trust
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.
Discover the extraordinary life of the 4th Earl of Bristol, the Ickworth visionary who built Ickworth House, a man loved and loathed in equal measure, the vagabond star in his own words.
