Sudbury Hall is not only a beautiful National Trust Property but is also houses the Museum Of Childhood, which provides a trip down memory lane for many older adults and is fascinating for children. The tea shop provided a mouthwatering array of goodies. Nice but pricey, considering that I had to clear the table before we could sit down.

Delightful visit. Car park about a five minute stroll from Hall with road crossing. Staff welcome you as you arrive so you don't have to figure out where to go...nice touch! Took guided tour but only of ground floor an hour before the Hall itself opens at 1pm. This was as ever interesting but felt we did a lot of... More

We called here following our visit to nearby Kedleston. (25 mins). I wasn't expecting to visit the house but thought we would just find the location for another day. The car park is a ten minute stroll fro the house but there is disabled parking on site. We were surprised to find tours available so we booked one for 2.30pm... More

A very charming & interesting place with a lot of local history. Although, we felt that a "guided" tour would have been of benefit. There are National Trusts guides in each of the rooms but sometimes it is not easy to approach them particularly if it is busy.I did purchase a guide book but it is nice to hear the... More

The tour took about 30 minutes .We then had a look around the full property at our own pace.The Hall dates back to the... More

Really enjoyed the grounds, and the museum of childhood - so many memories! The hall was lovely, but didn't feel it tells a story like other National Trust places do

At first we thought the car park was a long walk from the house but it was fine, if you do have mobility problems when we came out we saw that lots of people had parked in the road, we were offered a house tour, which was the highlight, Geoff was our tour guide, he impressed us with his memory...

Visited Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood today and can report it was fine and worthwhile. I am sure we will call again and have another look when we have a little more time. Can recommend the Café where we had a pleasant lunch. Sudbury Hall is well worth a visit.

We began in the toy museum and we found toys we had forgotten all about. We loved it ! The house was beautiful outside and inside. There wasn't as much furniture as some other NT properties but the fittings were stunning. We spent a lot of time looking up at the ceiling and although mirrors were supplied to view the... More
