Very helpful staff, free admission to this very interesting property. Even though it is undergoing building work it is a beautiful building with a fascinating history.

A very good history of Ipswich, its trade, the painters and way of life, well worth an afternoon exploring together with the architecture of its time on a par with Seckford hall both built around 1547 and artists of the Suffolk artists gallery and The Wolsey Art Gallery including a few constables ..... well worth a look.

A very fine house, well located in the park, had a wide range of interesting things to see; fine architecture, old wooden panels cleverly painted with historic scenes, old toys, a whole range of rooms and my favourites in the adjoining art gallery. Nice tea room.

Beautiful old manor house with lots of interesting exhibits. The grounds are great to take in at any time of the year and they serve a great "cream tea"!

This is one of my favourite places to visit in Ipswich. I grew up in the area and it was a great attraction even then. The mansion is a wonderful museum with lots of interesting exhibits and paintings. There were some great interesting paintings of areas around Suffolk. My Mum really enjoyed seeing the children's toys and especially the dollhouse... More

This is well worth a visit and will interest a wide age group. It is home to several of Constable's paintings. The staff are very helpful.

This is a place not to miss entry is free in beautiful parkland with children's play area if required. The house is packed with 17th cent plus items in situ within the rooms. Great to visit in all weathers.
