My partner doesn’t come from Ipswich & has never been here before but he loved it. The staff were very friendly & answered any questions we had. Would definitely recommend a visit & it’s also free to go in.

Visited here to see Constable & Gainborough paintings and was not disappointed. Lovely old house with interesting rooms, panelling, displays, paintings etc. Well worth a visit, free admission and easy to spend 2-3 hours admiring everything
