Winter lights experience returns to Ickworth Estate

As the nights draw in this November, Ickworth Estate will once again be transformed by colour and light into a magical landscape as its popular “garden that glows” Light Nights event returns.

The immersive outdoor light experience gets under way on Friday, November 11, and runs for 17 nights.

Visitors can soak up the the colourful and enchanting atmosphere as they weave through canopies of trees, Italianate evergreens and Gothic Victorian-esque stumpery. New for this year the trail has been extended taking in the ancient Albana woodland.

Adrian Shepherd, the general manager, said: “Ickworth Light Nights is back for 2022 with an even longer trail and exploring new areas of the estate. It’s such a great opportunity to see Ickworth in a new light under the autumnal night sky. The money we raise will be immediately invested in the conservation of our buildings, collections and habitats.”

For the third year of Light Nights, visitors are given the opportunity to explore a new area of the estate in the Albana Woodland – one of the original pleasure grounds on the estate. As the trail weaves in and around the woodland, visitors will be delighted by blocks of colour highlighting some of Ickworth’s oldest and most beautiful trees.

As well as discovering the gardens and outdoors, you can visit the West Wing to enjoy some late night shopping in the gift shop and indulge in a festive bake or warming seasonal drink in the café.
