A lovingly maintained house with something for everybody's taste. So much history combined with excellent displays of art work, from Constables to Gainsborough's to Picasso. The entrance charge is nothing but it is worth investing just £1 on the guide book which leads round the house room by room. I assume that all the local schools will have at least... More

A really lovely building set in a nice park, the house has some wonderful art, and kids will love the old toy room. Very dark wood panelling, beautifully carved, and a great glass exhibit too. The folders of information in each room though definately need an overhaul. The only downside was the very disappointing tea room, with barely a few... More

What a lovely gem in the heart of Ipswich. Free to look around with a wealth of interesting collectables and a lovely little cafe. Great grounds for the whole family to enjoy and all so accessible on foot from the main town. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

Good museum with rich collection of various ancient pieces. Excellent medieval kitchen, laundry, gorgeous living rooms. All explained with well prepared notes. Next to collection of local glass and paintings you may find even drawing of Pablo Picaso. Lovely place.

Christchurch Mansion is a great place to visit for an insight into Tudor and Victorian life. The staff is very kind and it is free of charge. It showcases nice paintings from local artists and an interesting collection of vintage toys including a doll house! It has a room for special exhibition and we were treated to the most famous...

The mansion is really a museum with some pretty interesting period-rooms set-up as they were in the past. There is also an impressive collection of art, including some sketches/ paintings by John Constable.

We visited on a wet Sunday afternoon with our 9 year old. We were welcomed at the door by a friendly guide who pointed us in the direction of the activities. There were Christmas crafts, Father Christmas, dancing and a brilliant Victorian storyteller all for a very small charge. The mansion is always very well presented and is a great... More
