Two very knowledgeable tour guides, made it a very interesting tour. The garden and sculptures are beautiful. A lovely little gift shop and a very pleasant tearoom. As HHA members we didn't have to pay any admission fee but if we had it would of been worth the money.

I lived near the Hall for many years and have never got tired of visiting it, although I think £11 each is too expensive for what you get. You have to remember that this is a family home so much of the house is off limits... The gardens and maze are the major attraction - I still cannot walk the... More

We decided to visit Somerleyton Gardens on a hot sunny day and we were not disappointed. As the weather was so nice we didn't go on a tour around the house. The maze is great and the gardens are stunning and well worth a visit.

Great for a venue! Went there for a Prom and would definitely recommend it to others, looks lovely outside and in. There's also a maze which proved to be great fun.

Have just returned from a day trip to Somerleyton Hall and Gardens and to be honest was disappointed firstly in my opinion a half day would have been enough 45mins tour of the house and then a walk round the gardens still left with oodles of time over. Now the café 4 of us had scones and only 1 could... More

Scintillo String Quartet concert was excellent and free ! It made our visit to the gardens & house a perfect day out. Check the events diary before you visit to catch a concert.

On a recent family holiday to Wroxham we decided to visit this hall. We took the train to the station of the same name and walked the 2 miles to the hall past an impressive looking thatched school. Thankfully I had a map because signs was non-existent. Once at the hall we plumped for the joint ticket of hall and... More
