Overview

Sutton House, built during the reign of Henry VIII, is the oldest house in East London. Bought and restored by the National Trust very recently, the house had been badly neglected up until the 1980s and was even home to squatters. The Tudor brickwork, linen fold paneling and stone fireplaces are the most visible original features to see. Additions made through the ages include a 17th-century painted staircase, a Victorian study and anarchist graffiti. There are also interactive computer programs and an art gallery to enjoy. The on-site Brick Place Cafe is licensed and offers a high standard of cuisine, and the shop sells a great range of local history books and gifts. Opening times vary seasonal, so check their website before visiting.
