All ready for christmas

The house looked brilliant and was decorated with a real traditional approach. There was Christmas music playing and it was much better than places such as Chatsworth.

We visited Sudbury on a very wet day so think this made it busier than usual. Lovely hands on museum kept the kids busy. The highlight was the Victorian school room enjoyed by the whole family. Well worth a visit.

We have visited Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood on many occasions and have never been disappointed. This was our first visit at Christmas time and I couldn't recommend it more highly for a great seasonal experience. Father Christmas was in a very festive grotto in the stables, he was lovely with the children and spent a long time... More

Well Sudbury Hall was a pleasure to visit with the Christmas theme. The volunteers are so engaging and willing to chat and share their expertise cannot wait until the summer so we are able to visit again

Always a delightful place to visit but excelled itself with lovely Christmas decorations. Volunteers are friendly and informative and the cakes in the restaurant were delicious!

Such an interesting place to visit. So many of the toys we remembered playing with as a child and others were toys which our children had. The room guides were so pleasant, helpful and eager to chat.
