If you are visiting Ickworth Park you are welcome to wander around the vineyard, and group tours and wine-tastings can be arranged at any time, by appointment. Please contact us using the Contact details page. Please close the gates after you as deer are partial to tender vine and rose shoots! Discovery Days (open days) are on the second Sunday of the month, June to October.
Visitors can come in from 11am to 4pm, walk the self guided trail, taking in the wonderful view of the vineyard from across the lake and ending up at the gazebo in the vineyard for wine tasting and a short talk. They can hear how English wine is gaining in popularity and how English sparkling wine is now a force to be reckoned with. Children have activities to do while they go round the trail and get grape juice at the wine tasting gazebo while their parents taste the wines. Costs are £3.50 for adults and 50p for children (please note that if you are not an NT member, there is a charge to enter the park, payable at the kiosk on entry. For details click here).
