Exploring the house at Ickworth

Exploring the house at Ickworth

You'll already know that we spent a good few hours wandering around grounds at Ickworth - see the parks and gardens at Ickworth House - and that I've teased you with a couple of black and white pictures of the staircase and landing already - see Black & White photos #6: A sneak peek into Ickworth House - well here's the last of my posts from our visit to Ickworth House.

It really is a lovely place to visit.

The rotunda - which took 37 years to complete - is the eye catcher of the house and rightly so, it was designed to impress and to hold the Earl-Bishop's art collection "in a way which would be instructive to his visitors" but there is so much more to see.

The tour of the house starts downstairs and alongside the stairs that down you below stairs are some fantastic quotes from both family members and servants alike.
