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.
