Grade II*-listed Tudor manor property Sutton House is Hackney's oldest domestic property, located off Homerton High Street.
Built in 1535 by Sir Ralph Sadleir, Principal Secretary of State to Henry VIII, it is now owned by the National Trust. The property retains the atmosphere of a traditional Tudor home, despite modification during the Georgian period.
Visitors can learn about the colourful history of the house from its use as a Fire Warden Centre during the Second World War, to its occupation by squatters during the 1980s.
Guests can also experience the sights and sounds of a Tudor kitchen and enjoy original features such as oak-panelled rooms, carved fireplaces and a charming courtyard.
Plus there is a cafe, second hand bookshop and art gallery, which showcases the work of local artists, craftspeople and community groups.
Areas of the building are also available to hire for events ranging from weddings to meetings and live music performances.
