Very interesting day out. Visited the Childrenhood Toy Museum first which is within the bounds of Sudbury Hall, what an amazing place it brought back some wonderful memories from my own childhood. The hall itself was really good with some beautiful ceilings and corniches in all rooms. The added attraction of the day a male voice choir were singing war... More

Good museum and lovely hall , sadly overpriced coffee shop and quality ... Takes away the 5 star option ... Parking good and added bonus of the chapel . Problem with Canada geese droppings in pathways !! Still worth a visit .

The highlight of our visit was a themed tour lasting from 11.30 to 13.00 hours. The theme was "Pride and Prejudice". The guide gave a very interesting presentation of each room and, where appropriate, indicated which rooms had been locations for the BBC Pride and Prejudice series. We heard inspiring comments about members of the Vernon family, including a former... More

An excellent mansion full of interesting detail. Some particularly good carving by Grinling Gibbons. The place has a very baroque feel to it. My only complaint is that the official car park is a long way from the hall The cafe was good, although, as usual for National Trust properties, over priced.

Spent an afternoon here last year. Until becoming NT members we didn't know about it. Adults will enjoy this just as much as young children. There are old toys all through the museum. Some can be played with but most are in cabinets. Big play area for burning off your kids energy too. There is a buggy running from the... More

The plasterwork and the paintings of the ceilings are fabulous. The grand staircase and the grand gallery, too. For Pride and Prejudice fans the interior shots of Pemberley are highly interesting also.

Really loved our day out at sudbury hall. Me and my partner went with our 6 month old baby. The volunteers were friendly and very knowledgeable. The museum of childhood and the hall were interesting to look around, all in all a really enjoyable experience made even more so by the interesting facts imparted by the lovely staff.
