“Nice Tudor House in Hackney”
Review of Sutton House

Sutton House
Ranked #447 of 1,815 things to do in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Was looking for something to do on Easter Monday which wasn't too expensive or far away. Paid £7 to visit this house of about half a dozen rooms. There's a small gift shop and self service cafe which has tea, coffee and cake. Took 45 mins taking my time to look around.
I wouldn't travel too far to see it, but if you're in the area or live a bus or tube ride away it's a pleasant way to spend an hour.

A 16th century house in Hackney - you're kidding right? Absolute gem of a place, with a massive back story to the initial makings of the village of Hackney. Must see and do asap.

Perhaps not one for a long visit, but interesting enough. Of particular note, the preserved squat on the top floor - an unusual slant of recent social history that you wouldn't expect of the NT. Adjoining Breaker's Yard good too.

We had national trust tickets and had to choose a property. I was pleasantly surprised by this lovely house.
There are lots of original features and real care has been taken to share it's expansive history.
I had no children with me but I loved the interactivity which is positively encouraged...kids would love it. Discovering things behind panels and opening chests.
Great outdoor space...again in keeping with its history as a breakers yards...I really enjoyed it....thank goodness it still survives for future generations to enjoy.

While moderately interesting, reviewers can be forgiven for rating it the 458th best thing to do in London. The house has passed through many hands, so no original contents remain, but it has panelling, and the National Trust has put in some furniture and pictures of the period, and other exhibits, notably on bricks, and the difference between ale and beer. As the house belonged to an important official rather than a great personage, it gives one some idea of the scale of home such a person might live in, and indeed the rooms are of a size we would consider quite generous today, and a similar sized house near central London would still be well beyond the means of most. As there are not many visitors it is nice and quiet, though it also means the café and shop are quite limited in scope. While it is not far from central London, it is a bit awkward to get to; in my case, I had to take two trains from Moorgate, or a long bus ride. It is not worth going out of your way for unless you have explored London fairly thoroughly, or have a special interest.
