Rather unusual place to look round!
Feb 2020 • Friends
Interesting looking round this - the oldest building in east London. Dating back to the Tudor times, this house has survived remarkably well, with fabulous wood panellings and a brick exhibit downstairs (an all-brick building was actually unusual for the time).

Occupied by squatters and with a tribute upstairs, there are also some crazy adapted camper van/coaches in the garden.

Good place to spend 30-40mins looking round

Amazing showcase of British history and friendly staff
Dec 2019
The house is relatively small but they have many activities, from the very creative meeting with Santas Clause, to the making of Xmas orange, and the showcase of Xmas meals across the Bristish history. It only took 1 hour or 2 to finish the house but we really enjoyed it.

Sutton House
Nov 2019
Got off at Hackney Central Overground Station and not far from the station is Sutton House & Breakers Yard .
National Trust owned (£10 per adult to get in , 2019 prices) or Free if you are a member.
A Tudor property built by Ralph Sadleir who was the Secretary of State to Henry Vlll and him & his family to live there in 1535 . As you go round the rooms you will still see major areas of the house still in Tudor times but also as the house evolved you will go into a Georgian parlour room and a Victorian Study . You can start by going downstairs to the cellar where it tells you all about bricks and how the house used other materials as well , Go and put your hand in one of the draws in the Tudor Kitchen and see what you think is inside ? Also there is a chapel downstairs as well on the East Wing ? Upstairs are some more rooms and that`s where you will see the Victorian Study . There is even some Tudor bricks in the Great Chamber fire place if you look up inside . The Squatters room had some stairs leading to the room but i think the door was locked . A few more rooms and artifacts are at Sutton House as well , A lovely house and still in fine tact even today .
The Breakers yard was interesting, one Coach with it`s inside taken out , Where i think it is used for educational purposes and a caravan with it`s own chai lounge downstairs .. I also had a lovely cup of tea which was great especially as the weather was terrible..
The lovely , knowledgeable young lady assistant/staff member called Gem was delightful so helpful and welcomed everyone coming in ..
Yep, a nice place to see a little bit of History in East London ..

Worth a small detour
Sep 2019 • Solo
This is a rare surviving example of a Tudor merchant's house that has been used as a private dwelling, a school and by the church so has an interesting history. The guidebook is rather uninspiring so I relied on the limited information in each room. I managed to get round the property in 45 minutes. There are very basic facilities so a shop with a tiny selection and an extremely basic cafe so for food and drink head to Mare Street nearby. I did not appreciate the relevance of the breaker's yard next to the house. If you are in Hackney come here but it is not worth much of a detour. The museum of local history in the Town Hall is worth a visit though.

A hidden gem
Aug 2019
Hackney is not where you expect to find a Tudor house built in 1535! It has a long history having been a merchants house, school, boarding school, church institute, trade union house and even squatters have lived there!
It is not large but well worth visiting. It has a small basic tea room but you can enjoy your cake and drinks in the peaceful courtyard. Don't forget to go outside and see what the National Trust have done with what was once an old breakers yard (the area is now for children). There is also a shop and toilets. The guide book at £4.50 has a lot more information and history in it.

Not much to see
May 2019 • Family
We visited on the early May bank holiday, as we are members and were in the area. We were aware that it wasn't a big property, but it was still smaller than we expected and there wasn't really much to see - we were finished in under an hour and we had a baby to change and feed. Unless you're in Hackney, it's not really worth the trip.

Fascinating building but more to discover
Feb 2019 • Couples
This is a fascinating historical building. We booked a guided tour and were advised via email that the time needed to be changed. It’s a small venue and the cafe is very basic and self service. The guide seemed quite nervous, maybe new to the venue. There was a concert about to start as well which may have been why the time of our tour was changed. I also felt there were some aspects of the house that were not covered as much as they might have been. All in all a good experience but could have been even better
