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

I have been a member of the National Trust for 10 years and in that time have visited many of the NT locations and never before encountered NT guides as rude,officious & unwelcoming or as unpleasant as at Sudbury Hall today. The Hall itself is an interesting 17th Century building with a unique Long Gallery and that is it.Sudbury is... More

My husband and I have just become National Trust members, and this was our first visit as one. Really glad we did. Spent about 4 hours here, wandering around the house, the grounds and the childhood museum. When we visited they had the "House within a house" exhibit on, and seeing all the dolls houses was brilliant (for me anyway!).... More

A brilliant day out for all ages, we had two children aged 2 and 4 along with parents and grandparents,It was great that there was so many hands on exhibits/ toys that the children could play with and the adults loved looking at all the ex hits...

a wonderful place, the hall is good to look round, but it is the museum of childhood you should visit. A wonderful place to remind yourself of your childhood, old toys, some lovely automata , the collection of Betty Cadbury, who gave this selection to the hall. Some fine examples of all sorts of beautiful toys, there are 12000 in... More

Visited the tea rooms while out cycling and thought you couldn't go wrong with a cream tea. Although it was adequate, the price seemed to be a bit steep for what it was. The amount of cream was a bit niggardly in quantity and quality; a dollop of clotted cream would have been so much more of a treat. The... More

The Museum of Childhood is excellent for all ages, and to my mind is what makes Sudbury Hall special. You can play with old-fashioned and newer toys, and see displays of toys from your own childhood era, which is very nostalgic. The Victorian schoolroom experience is fun, although those of a sensitive disposition may not enjoy being picked on by... More

Sudbury Hall is not one of the major stately homes but is well worth visiting for a day out. There are several elements worth seeing - the house, the gardens, the church, the museum and the village. The house is not huge but is a Restoration Baroque style feast dating from 1660 and the home of the Vernon family. The... More

Visited Sudbury hall and being a National Trust member all aspects of our visit were free. I cannot comment on the hall as we did not go in as it was a beautiful day so did not want to go inside as we visited the attraction primarily to visit the childrens museum. We found this very interesting and a nice... More
