It takes a photon about 1 million years to get from the core to the photosphere and then 8 seconds to get to earth. The lowest possible estimates are about 100 thousand years, This has to do with the high temperatures and the massive amounts of free electrons in the core environment.

Neutrinos escape the sun"s core in a few seconds but light takes hundreds of years!
