SUDBURY HALL and the NATIONAL TRUST MUSEUM of CHILDHOOD

SUDBURY HALL and the NATIONAL TRUST MUSEUM of CHILDHOOD

17th century Jacobean house and garden, plus the National Trust's Museum of Childhood. Entry is separate to both attractions, or a ticket can be purchased for both. The museum is not a toy museum but a museum about the experience of childhood - though there are plenty of toys to look at. It is primarily geared to younger visitors, who can dress up, attend a Victorian school etc. There is also a V&A Museum of Childhood in London. The house is famous for its plasterwork, staircase and long gallery.

Sudbury Hall and Museum of Childhood are in Derbyshire, about 6 miles east of Uttoxeter, just off the A50. The car park is free, but it’s a little distance away; there is a transfer service.
