The oldest house in east London, red-brick Sutton House is owned by the National Trust and was built in 1535 for Henry VIII's first secretary of state, Sir Ralph Sadleir. Now beautfully restored with authentic original decor, with a real Tudor kitchent, Sutton House also boasts Jacobean and Georgian interiors, as well as an Edwardian chapel, medieval foundations in the cellar and 1980s graffiti under the roof. Sutton House also has possibly London's oldest loo – a sixteenth-century garderobe, which was boarded up in the 1700s. Note that the house closes for January each year.

    Straightaway you know you’re in a film by Wes Anderson. ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ opens with the camera gracefully panning sideways through the cross-section of a suburban home in 1960s New England, stopping occasionally, like a train pulling into statio...

    Pioneers of ‘reality rap’ (we now call it gangsta) NWA deserve their own movie. No doubt. But is the often sentimental, occasionally dull ‘Straight Outta Compton’ the best version of that movie? Only partly. There’s enjoyable humour (and beautiful...

    Showing a signature flair missing since 'Gladiator' (2000), Ridley Scott returns to mainstream mastery with 'The Martian', a space misadventure turned survivor’s tale. Similarities to 'Apollo 13' and the more recent 'Gravity' will be obvious to an...

    Jokes about whether or not you can crack it will inevitably follow ‘The Lobster’ into cinemas – where audiences will have to decide whether the film’s deadpan weirdness and high-concept ruminations on love and life are for them or not. This is the...
