Enjoyed my visit to Sutton House. The display of various brick types in the cellar was interesting as was the rest of the house. Details and discoveries in various rooms were well selected. Paneled room was of particular interest. History of the house is extensive....More

Oldest house in Hackney and definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Free entry if you are a member of the National Trust. Wooden paneling on the ground floor is stunning

Nice historic house run by the National Trust. Outside in grounds there are some unusual things to explore such as a double height caravan. Nice cafe in courtyard to finish off. Don’t miss the model cars in the big steel gates to right of entrance

Sutton House is a National Trust property and is one of the oldest brick built houses in Hackney. Not too much inside but the actual building is ok enough for a 30 - 40 minute visit if you are interested in the Tudor period. I...More

I had only heard about this place a couple of days ago and was surprised to hear about a Tudor house so close to home. When I arrived, it took a few attempts to get in. You need to knock on the door. Despite the...More
