Walk in the footsteps of Mr Darcy
The interiors of Sudbury Hall were used in the BBCs 1996 adaptation of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ as the inside of Pemberley. The long gallery, the Great Staircase, the Saloon, the Library, the Cross Passage and the Queens Bedroom were all used.
You can relive your childhood all over again in the Museum of Childhood. Reminisce and see how times have changed, from a Victorian School Room to Chopper Bikes. The exhibits include the ‘Betty Cadbury Collection’.
We plan to depart Sudbury at 5.00pm for the short journey home.
