Varied attractions from historic hall, museum of childhood, outdoor playground and walks, plus special events. In particular the spacious lawned area outside the restaurant is a great asset. Special events well worthwhile booking eg "behind the scenes " and in the museum the Victorian school room was excellent for all ages.

This is a fabulous National Trust property, the house is fascinating and the gardens beautiful. The toy museum is so interesting, brought back so many childhood memories seeing the huge collection of toys and games from years gone by, definitely worth a visit.

Life Members and we travelled a few hours to see this property and definitely weren't disappointed. Stunning house and grounds, well worth the travel and the museum of childhood was similarly excellent - double ticket very much recommended.

Went today as a lot of the activities are indoors. Had a nice time, the staff were friendly and accepting and showed us a spot indoors where we could have a picnic. The museum was interesting and they had some lovely things for the kids to do. The hall was nice and it was good to see some of the... More

Visited Sudbury hall on a few occasions on route to airport after alton towers visit. The hall is bea and the grounds are well maintained. I'm a pride and prejudice fan, so it was great to see the rooms they used. The national childhood museum is attached to the hall as are tea rooms and a gift shop, all of... More

Visited the Hall and Museum as part of a visit to Derbyshire. The museum was very interesting and brought back so many memories of things we all had when children, toys and games long forgotten. There is a 1800s school room for you to experience and a museum crammed with facts and nostalgia. The children will love going up the... More

In the national trust booklet AND on the welcome sign it says that dogs are welcome. However... The ONLY place you can take them is the picnic area! Did not see any part of the grounds, was really disappointed! Wish they'd stated this and I would've left them at home. A completely wasted visit! Wasn't going to leave them in... More

Really interesting for all ages. Bring a picnic and a cricket set on a nice day. Really good fun. I defy anyone to visit the museum and not say 'I had one of those'. Very interesting and usual good National Trust tea.

I'm not really sure what I thought of the visit. The toy museum is well worth a look around. The main house not so great, certainly wouldn't have been worth the admission without the the benefit of the museum.
