At nearly 500 years old, Sutton House is the oldest home in East London. Originally a Tudor courtier’s house, it has since experienced many reincarnations including, at various times, a home to silk merchants and to Huguenot families. It is situated in thriving modern-day Hackney, north-east of the River Thames, and offers a window onto London’s history. This talk and tour will highlight its historical contents including its linenfold panelling and 17th century wall paintings, while its tranquil courtyard takes us back to a world long since lost.
As a listed building, unfortunately Sutton House is not fully accessible. The house is on four floors, with several flights of stairs and no lift.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
