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.
