A beautiful house and gardens which, as always with The National Trust, is brought to life with their team of enthusiastic volunteers and information sheets, both in each room and to take around with you. A vision of grandeur and a humbling history lesson on Queen Adelaide. Well worth the entrance fee although the tea rooms prices are rather excessive... More

We have visited Sudbury before, but like many National Trust places there is always something new! Museum of Childhood is interesting for all ages- nostalgia foe the older generation & history for young people & children. Home cooked food make this an excellent day out for all the family.

Visited Sudbury Hall in July 2014, what a beautiful place. The museum of childhood was excellent, what a wealth of knowledge in that place alone, the children enjoyed it so much. Car park was across the road and up a lane, so a bit away from the Hall itself but ok for us as we were able to walk it.... More

Visited with the 5 grandchildren and first priority was to eat .Restaurant has reasonable selection of hot and cold food as well as childrens boxes. However,the kids had individual sandwiches which they preferred. Spent couple of hours around the toy museum and they even experienced a Edwardian school class with teacher,slates and even dunces cap. As the weather was unseasonably... More

We are Nat Trust members and paid another visit to Sudbury Hall yesterday. There is ample car parking close to the hall and once inside the hall it's a very well preserved and interesting building. The NT volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful and outside the hall there are ample gardens, a cafeteria, shop and toilets and of course the... More

We took the taster guided tour which I would really recommend. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and gave us a great insight to the history and features of the house. We also visited the childhood museum which was interesting.

I found the exterior of this restoration mansion rather uninspiring but was perhaps influenced by the seemingly ubiquitous National Trust scaffolding on the rear elevation; but we must be pleased the Trust is taking steps to stop our heritage falling down. The highlight of the interior is the grand staircase and spectacular ceilings, the staircase reputedly being the finest in... More

Nice house and setting, visited another national trust location about 40 mins drive away, so good to combine journey for more than one property visit.

I am a NT member and this was a quick visit as travelling through the area. The Childhood Museum was lovely and I fail to see how anyone would not remember some toy, book or game from their past. We had a lovely piece of coffee cake from the tea shop but I think there is room for improvement with... More

I am a National Trust member and we decided to visit due to staying nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Sudbury Hally and the museum of childhood. The house was beautiful and very interesting. The museum of childhood was great, the children enjoyed looking at all the displays and really enjoyed taking part in the school class, they especially... More
