The National Trust property of Sudbury Hall is a delightful place to visit. This is a very grand 17th century stately home from the Restoration period with a lavish interior and beautiful gardens. There is plenty to be in awe of like the Long Gallery, which was featured in the BBC “Pride and Prejudice”, the great staircase with its magnificent plasterwork, the Grinley Gibbons wood carvings or the painted ceilings.

It’s all unique of course, but the Museum of Childhood part is exceptionally appealing, nostagia incorporated – you only have to be young at heart! There are different sections: the Victorian street, Children in domestic service, toys throught the ages, dolls houses, erstwhile school days, special projects, storytelling and much more. The bedroom on the ceiling was particularly fascinating.

It was a glorious Easter Day when we were there, so we sat outside the Coach House Cafe to enjoy our hot cross scones. Delicious!
Well worth a visit.
