DAY OUTING TO BURY ST EDMUNDS and ICKWORTH

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE but the details remain here for information

We depart from Sainsbury’s at Stanway at 9.15am and spend the morning in Bury St Edmunds where you are free to explore at your leisure, perhaps visiting the Cathedral, Museum or Abbey Gardens, or browsing in the shops.

Departing at 12.30pm we take a short drive to Ickworth (NT). Ickworth is an Italianate palace set in the heart of an ancient deer park with formal gardens and woodlands. The Earl of Bristol created this eccentric house with its central rotunda and curved corridors in 1795 to display his collections. The collections include paintings by Titian, Gainsborough and Velazquez, a Georgian silver collection and some neo-classical sculpture.

Refreshments are available in the West Wing Cafe and Porters Lodge Cafe. There is the usual National Trust shop and plants are for sale in the Garden Shop adjacent to the car park.

We depart at 4.15pm expecting to be back at Stanway around 6.00pm.
