Ickworth House, Park & Gardens

Unusual Georgian house and landscape park

In 1795 the eccentric 4th Earl of Bristol created this equally eccentric house, with its central Rotunda and curved corridors, to display his collections. Paintings by Titian, Gainsborough and Velázquez and a magnificent Georgian silver collection are on display. An Italianate garden lies to the south of the house, which is set in a 'Capability' Brown park with woodland walks, vineyard, Georgian summerhouse, church, canal and lake
