Owner description: Sudley House has been described as a hidden gem. Tucked away in leafy suburbs, Sudley is the only house of a Victorian merchant that still has its original pictures, including works by Millais, Turner and Rossetti, and with beautiful period furniture, carpets and wallpaper it doesn't feel like a regular gallery. There is also a childhood room, a small world room and a costume room, which often house temporary displays, and tearooms. Admission is free.

“Take Time Out To Visit Sudley House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

If you have time while in LIverpool take time out to visit Studley House, only a short walk away from Mossley Hill rail Sation. I took the Manchester/Oxford Street train from Lime Street to reach Mossely Hill. A return from Lime Street on Satruday was £2.40 and admission to the house is free. It is a lovely grand house full of lovely paintings. The downstairs has been made to resemble Victorian/Edwardian ineterior and the upstairs has changing exhibitions. The staff are lovely and the coffee great.

“Our very own Downton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

Over looking the River Mersey and beyond to Wales on Mossley Hill. Sudley House is a fine grand house owned by merchants during the Edwardian and Victorian era. Great pictures occupy the dining and library rooms. Fine decor and restoration kept in keeping with the house, my wife informs me who lived off Elmswood Road that it was vandalised and abandoned for many years. Liverpool needs to hold onto such places like Sudley as this our heritage! Sudley is also memorial garden to the Hillsbrough tragedy, the rose garden in high season is colourful and tasteful. Cafe is excellent, tea and cake traditional style. Well worth a visit, being from Liverpool this my fav weekend treat!

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

It was worth a visit to see all the old furniture and the history of the building, there are also books to browse through. I am glad I walked through the gardens as I found a bush that I didn't know what it was, and after looking it up when I got home. I have now ordered one, so will bring back memories of my visit here.
