Being National Trust members, we decided to pay this hall a visit. It was easy to find and the car park was large, approximately a five minute walk from the hall itself, however, there was a little buggy type vehicle that runs regularly between the carpark and hall to help transport those less mobile. The hall does not open until... More

A visit of two halves. As we arrived before 1pm the house was ot yet open so we spent an enjoyable time in the Museum of Childhood (Ample free parking opposite the Hall). Tried my hand ot the spinning top and surprised some younger children (no electronics here!) that a "grandad" could play with toys!. We will be taking our... More

The museum was also buggy friendly with a lift which was great. Baby changing facilities on the second floor too. We visited the cafe which was nice... More

We visited Sudbury Hall for the first time this summer and will definitely return. The Museum of Childhood was a trip down memory lane for the adults and an eye-opener for the children when they realised the type of jobs they would have had in past times! We didn't visit the hall as the playground was too appealing for the... More

All that you usually expect from the National Trust (grounds, historic house, informative guides, delicious food) with the added attraction of the Museum of Childhood which brought back many memories not only for the adults but our teenage daughter too. Also liked the Olympic themed activities in the gardens - inspired!

Visited Sudbury with friends and had a great visit. We started with coffee and cake at the cafe and as the weather was warm we were able to sit outside, there was a lovely range to choose from and the scone of the week -cheese and red onion was very tasty. The highlight though was a tour of the house... More

Free parking, excellent woodland park, friendlt volunteers offering craft workshops, a mini beast hunt, an ice-cream what more do you need for a day out with young children. On this occasion we didn't visit the house/childhood museum but both are well worth a look.

Great day out for all the family to enjoy the children loved trying find the borrowers in the house and enjoyed all the play equipment in the gardens. The barn with tables in for picnics was brilliant as it rained while we were there.

Having only recently joined the National Trust along with my daughter and young grandson,we thought we would all end the Bank Holiday with a visit to Sudbury Hall as it seemed to have something of interest for all of us.It was a lovely sunny day and upon arrival found plenty of parking space in the car park just up the...
