Accessible from the City by bus, this is a fascinating old house with a chequered history. Staff were very helpful and friendly, but we sensed this is something of a 'poor relation' in the National Trust scheme of things. Our visit was somewhat spoiled by 'The Borrowers' exhibition/activities for children during the school holidays. There was a great deal of... More

Great afternoon exploring this 16th century building with its multiple uses over time. Fascinating to see and learn about the development and different uses of the house over 500 years. Loved the Breakers Yard, preserving in a quirky way, more recent history of car spares business. Loved the recreated squatters' room. Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff. Love the way the...

I volunteered with a educational charity for a project that the National Tryst had endorsed, that mixed story telling with designing building and making. The house itself was a pleasant surprise as it had been purposed to suit all ages. There is a 'Borrowers' style tour of the grounds that you can do along with a self guided tour of... More

As I was in London I decided to extend my visit to Hackney so I could see Sutton House. So pleased I did. A fascinating house with a chequered history and hurrah for the locals who championed its renovation. It has a wonderful community feel and the staff were really friendly and helpful. I especially liked being able to sit... More

Staying not far from this National Trust property, we decided to walk to it from near Old Street Station. The walk took about an hour each way and went through interesting parts of London. On our return journey we walked along Regents Canal which made for a nice change to the busy roads. Sutton House was originally built in the... More

Just a 5 minute walk from Hackney Central, and one of the lesser known National Trust properties, this house is a real gem. I received a warm welcome from the staff who were more than happy to explain the history of the house and what to look out for. If like me you like poking around a property and exploring... More

Had a fantastic visit to Sutton house. Staff very friendly and informative. The house itself holds many secrets waiting to be found.. well worth a visit.

I visited Sutton House on a Bank Holiday weekend- it is located in Hackney and is somewhat of a surprising remnant of Tudor Times. It is a fabulous building with lots of twists and turns to explore, but sadly little survives of the associated contents. The place was somewhat noisy and thronging with children and the cafe and shop are... More

This is the only Tudor property in London, and the National Trust have done a great job showing the many ages of the building. We see Tudor linen fold panels, and some fine portraits, but also a Georgian room, and even a reconstructed squat to commemorate recent struggles to preserve it. No original furniture, but rooms well displayed, kitchen especially... More

Discovered this hidden gem just 1/2 mile walk from where I was staying with my daughter's family - the lovely old Tudor brick manor house (oldest in the East End) is tucked away on the corner of an undistinguished street and offers the visitor a haven of old world charm for the fairly modest £5 entry fee. The house has... More
