The West Wing at Ickworth House was never finished and laid empty until 2006, when a joint partnership between the National Trust and Sodexo Prestige led to its renovation and opening as a centre for conferences and events. The first wedding in the property’s history took place in 2006.
Today, the West Wing contains visitor, conference, banqueting and wedding facilities, while the East Wing is now The Ickworth Hotel. The West Wing at Ickworth comprises a selection of stunning and flexible rooms. The Gallery, located on the 2nd floor, is a flat-floored space with a raised balcony area overlooking the parkland to the front and the formal gardens and terrace to the rear.

Linked by a short corridor is the Court which as well as incorporating a bar provides meeting or breakout space for up to 40 delegates.
