Main Road Sudbury England DE6 5HT GB

At this exquisite country home discover spectacular 17th-century craftsmanship and be amazed with the detail of the plasterwork, woodcarvings and the classical story-based murals.

Walk around the Great Staircase and the Long Gallery and learn all about the history of the house. You may even recognise where the BBC’s adaption of Pride and Prejudice was filmed.

Have a contrasting experience by visiting the Museum of Childhood where you’ll see a large collection of toys, games, dolls, train sets from the 1920’s to the present day. You’ll even see a bedroom on a ceiling!

Make your own stories as you play with the toys and share your own childhood experiences with others. You can even be a Victorian pupil, a scullion and even a chimney sweep. And if that’s not enough, be captivated by the hall’s archive films and interactive displays.

There’s also an outdoor woodland play area which is located at the rear of the house. You and your family certainly won’t be bored here.

Facilities: Parking 500 yards from the Hall.
