Half-term Betty Cadbury Collecting Trail

Follow the clues around Sudbury Hall's garden and learn more about the woman we have to thank for the collection we see in the museum today

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Betty Cadbury was the wife of Christopher Cadbury, a director of the famous chocolate company. Throughout her life she amassed a huge collection of toys and much of what you see in the Museum of Childhood is from this very collection! Once you've found all the clues outside, why not head into the Museum and see what else you can find? (Admission applies for the museum to non National Trust members.)
