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...More

We went on a family visit to Sutton House on Saturday for my daughter to meet Father Christmas. The tickets were £9 (adults rather expensive) and £5.50 (child). We were greeted by the beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the entrance garden - a perfect setting...More

This is an unusual National Trust Property in that its history as a stately home ended a long time ago and since then it has had a chequered history. What you see inside and outside the house reflects that. The personnel on duty when we...More

Oldest house in Hackney and definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Free entry if you are a member of the National Trust. Wooden paneling on the ground floor is stunning

Very interesting seeing the way the house was built and the way people lived. All being it would have been rich people apart from the 80's squatters, also interesting they have made one of the rooms as it was in the 1980's. Inside and outside...More

Nice historic house run by the National Trust. Outside in grounds there are some unusual things to explore such as a double height caravan. Nice cafe in courtyard to finish off. Don’t miss the model cars in the big steel gates to right of entrance

if you see Sutton House from the street, you'll have no idea of its Tudor beginnings. The first owner was employed by Thomas Cromwell, heavily involved in Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries. The Linenfold Room has paneling from the 16th C, and in various...More
