Sutton House

BUILT in 1535 by Sir Ralph Sadlier, Principal Secretary of State to Henry VIII, Sutton House is East London’s oldest domestic property.

Now owned by the National Trust, it 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.

There is also a café, second hand bookshop and art gallery, which showcases the work of local artists, craftspeople and community groups.

Each Friday afternoon is dedicated to 'over 55s fun' featuring a varied programme of activities. Look out for free family days too. Group deals and family tickets are also available.

Chesham Arms

THIS traditional Homerton boozer has been closed since 2012 after it was bought by a developer who hoped to build a block of flats on the site. Residents and the Campaign for Real Ale have been fighting, supported by Hackney Council, to get the pub reopened and it was listed as an 'asset of community value' after a landmark tribunal ruling in 2013.
