Just came back from a brilliant day out with my wife. The house is a gem and the portrait collection is a brilliant insight to the history of England. The grounds are very well maintained and generally a brilliant place to visit on a summer's day.

We have visited Sudbury Hall many times. The staff are generally very knowledgeable and keen to share information. The Hall has new areas being prepared for opening to the public this year...worth a look. Exhibitions in the Billiard Room are always good. Good cafe and loos. Gardens are pretty informal. It's worth a wander along the road to see the... More

The museum of childhood is very good, walking around the grounds very enjoyable. The hall was closed that day unfortunately. Staff were very friendly.

We had a few days in Derby and as national trust members went out and about to see various attractions. The hall is superb with one of the best staircases of any house of its sort in the country. The trust given the overall cost of up keep do very well. The guides were brilliant and very informative. If you... More

We recently visited Sudbury Hall for a visit to see the house and also the toy museum. It was easy to find and the car parking was well organised. The gardens were very well laid out and had a very enjoyable walk. Used the picnic area for our lunch which was good but please can the attraction put some bins... More

We called here on our way home from Liverpool to Luton in order to break our journey for a couple of hours but I wish we had had longer. We'll definitely go back. The ladies in our group visited the Museum of Childhood whilst we menfolk toured the house. Both were well worth a visit and warrant a return visit.... More

We visited the Hall with three of our older Grandchildren and had a very nice day here, there was also a Museum of childhood where we spent a couple of hours, there was walks and an outdoor adventure playground for the little people, the Hall itself was lovely to look at but in my opinion needed a guided tour to...

Visited here as a change from our usual places we like to go, and so pleased we did. The hall is lovely to look around, as most national trust properties are. The childhood museum is amazing both me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed it and my 4 year old son loved getting involved with all the activities along the way.... More

We met up as a family for the Fathers Day event they staged, it was great fun for adults and children. The only down side to the day was a very rude car park attendant he did start the day off with a very negative view of the visit, but once we got over his rudeness a good day was... More
