Visitors will have a chance to look around a number of gardens open to the public including the phenomenal Gertrude Jekyll inspired gardens at Woolverstone House which was designed by Edwin Lutyens.

Also, thanks to the generosity of Ipswich High School, there is a chance to view the grand Palladian architecture of Woolverstone Hall and with stunning photo opportunities in the gardens overlooking the River Orwell; one of the “loveliest views in England”.
