There were decorations aplenty both inside the hall and outside in the grounds. Local organisations had made tree decorations with a great deal of talent. I really rated the tree decorations embellished by the Derbyshire Beaders, they were all worthy of a mention though. The whole of the Hall was beautifully and magically decorated.

We made two visits to the decorated Hall. Such lovely lighting and candles ( battery operated!) beautiful handicrafts for the decorations and the intriguing story of the bad witch and the mice that had scattered around the Hall and needed to be found! 12 in all, I think? The tree of wishes was full, and I hope they all come... More

We visited here with family and were amazed by the beauty of the place. We enjoyed looking round the house and gardens what more could you want on a Sunday but to enjoy this property.

Visiting Sudbury Hall around Christmas proved to be a fun, festive experience. It's a good venue to bring kids to as with the accompanying museum, there's lots for them to see and do. The hall is fairly impressive to look around too - in particular I liked the unique stairwell and the impressive long gallery. Lots of nice little touches... More

Found this little gem of a cafe while walking my dogs Jessi Jack Russell and Kalli German Shepherd. Sat outside in the sheltered stable yard and enjoyed the best cheese scone (fresh out of the oven) and hot chocolate ever. Staff were so friendly and welcoming 🐶

Visited yesterday. Hall opens at on but we joined a group at 12pm for a mini tour around the ground floor, guide was informative and made the tour fun and interesting. We visited the hall again for a better look around when it opened, lots of rooms to explore and full for history. We had a walk around the gardens... More

The Hall is disappointing, it was difficult to see much within as it's so dark. I understand that light can be problematic for restoration etc but there's no point to opening as a visitors attraction if it's too dark to really see anything. However, the museum alone is worth a visit!
