Visited for the first time at the beginning of half term while on holiday in the area. This is another great N.T. Property. The large car park is about 300 metres away from the hall on the other side of the road and as it is quite a busy road running through the pretty village of Sudbury so care must... More

This was our first visit to Sudbury Hall and upon on arrival their is a big car park and staff direct you to a space. You then walk up down to the hall but beware if you have small kids you have to cross the road in to village of Sudbury to get to the hall so care is needed... More

My first trip to Sudbury....but the kids third!...can definitely see why they enjoyed it so much.... The museum of childhood does have a very eclectic....almost childlike feel to its arrangement....surely a testament to its intention....to appeal to younger visitors who can relate to older items by linking them with the more familiar toys.... There are some very poignant items tucked... More

I visited the Hall today with my young family to help fill up a wet day. There is a nice clean cafe there and we had some lovely homemade or locally made cakes. The children's museum is excellent. There are lots of things to look at and play with, and I think this will be of particular interest to kids... More

Been a few times, this time we saw Santa which was nice the kids got a good toy. The house was very good and decorated with about 15 Christmas trees around the house, decorated in traditional trimmings. Love it will definately go again, a downside is the carpark is a short walk from the house across a road, but disabled... More

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
