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!

A great day out for any weather conditions. A beautiful hall is complimented by the fascinating Museum of Childhood. A short garden walk and a good tearoom completes your day out.

Sudbury Hall may not in places be as fancy as some but where it is, it's lovely. Plus it's not often you get to experience a house as much as you do at Sudbury Hall. You're able to go downstairs to view the kitchen and some of the servants quarters and you can go into the unfinished billiard room. Usually... More

A good day spent at the toy museum then a look round the hall. The guides were friendly and helpful. The long gallery was very impressive.

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
