Late 17th-century house with lavish interiors and the Museum of Childhood
Come and discover two contrasting experiences sitting side by side.
Sudbury Hall, the country home of the Lords Vernon, offers a delight of 17th-century craftsmanship, featuring exquisite plasterwork, wood carvings and classical story-based murals. Be amazed by the grandeur of the Great Staircase, Long Gallery and the captivating story which the house tells, brought to life by our knowledgeable volunteers and guides.
The Museum of Childhood is a delight for all ages with something for everyone. Watch your children discovering something new, or relive nostalgic memories by exploring the childhoods of times gone by, make stories, play with toys and share your childhood with others. You can be a chimney sweep, a scullion or a Victorian pupil, and be captivated by our archive film and interactive displays.

We were so impressed at how friendly the staff were and it was such a brilliant experience. The way in which the butler managed the tour was so interesting, humorous and informative.
