Family activities

Explore, discover and be amazed …

Why not listen to our Ickworth Church Audio Guide.

Ickworth Church and churchyard are sacred places and important to the families whose ancestors are buried there. They also contain fascinating glimpses into history and the natural world. Activities and trails for families and children are available in our discovery boxes. Use them to help you pause, make you think, help you get creative and to test how observant you are.

  • EXPLORE the churchyard and find a clever trick to make it easier to read old stone lettering
  • DISCOVER the church and try to stand like an angel
  • TEST how observant you with our I-Spy sheets
  • MAKE a rubbing
  • USE a hand lens to find some surprising 'jam tarts'

Discovery boxes

You can borrow a discovery box from one of our volunteers in the church, they are available whenever the church is staffed. Please help us maintain the church and the discovery boxes by volunteering a small donation as a thank you – we suggest £2.
