My partner and I visited Suffolk house a few weeks ago during a short getaway to Penang. The building on its own is quite majestic and was supposedly the home to Penang’s founder Sir Francis Light. The interior did not fail to impress and was quite regal.
We took a guided tour (rm 15) a small fee compared to the cost it took to restore the building and I can only imagine the cost of up keep as well! There is a fine dining restaurant in the building suitable for a romantic dinner/ English tea session or group functions.
Unfortunately we had a lunch date elsewhere so did not have time to sample it. I’m sure a Garden wedding would be quite lovely here. Anyways, this place was worth the visit as being inside the building itself felt like we were part of history especially considering that it is more thn 200 years old and is the only surviving Georgian Mansion in Malaysia!
