This year’s coach trip is to the National Trust property of Ickworth in Suffolk, with its classical architecture, wonderful garden and interesting contents.

We will leave Enfield at 9.30am and reach Ickworth House about 11.30. The magnificent building and estate reflects the Hervey family’s interest in everything Italian with a rotunda and Italianate garden while within the house there are paintings by Gainsborough and Reynolds amongst others and an extensive collection of silver.

As is usual in a National Trust property there is a shop and plant centre and several places to eat. The garden includes some lovely walks as well as an extensive fernery and spending the day here should give us time to eat, shop and explore the house and grounds. We will leave Ickworth at 4.30 and be back in Enfield by 6.30 pm.

This trip is now fully booked and no more places are available.
