You will see how hung up we are on these bins but you need to read to understand the story. On discussion with my wife on our trip home we decided it was our duty to write a review and save you all from the tedious purgatory that is the Anglo Saxon village. We should have heeded the signs really... More

My friend and I spent a lovely morning at West Stow Country Park and Anglo-Saxon Village and enjoyed stepping back in time looking at this excellent historical resource. Each house we visited told us a lot about how our ancestors lived, worked etc. We were also impressed with the entrance and parking fees. Very reasonable.

I appreciated that the exhibits explain the archaeological progress that has been made in trying to establish just what the village would have looked like in the past. In March, not much was going on, but with re-enactors in the summer, I would think this would have earned an even higher rating from me.

We went in the febuary half term. Car park £2 £15 entry to go in to the village. It was a Sunday in half term and we went to join in ring quest. Which is a challenge linked to The Lord of the rings/the hobbit. You have a rune sheet and have to collect different runes to find the hidden... More

Have visited many times during the years, it has something for everyone, of course the amazing anglo-saxon village and museum, large lake and river for lovely walks. A really good adventure playground for the children. Cafe with a view of the trees, and incorporates a gift shop too. Large car park and clean toilets too. Well maintained and a pleasure... More

Really good Anglo Saxon village - that you have to pay for to go around (fair enough) but why oh why yet another place the council want to charge people to park at - don't they want visitors any more? We regularly visited for a walk round and had coffee or Ice cream etc at the cafe - now we... More

This is a must if visiting Bury St Edmund's, showing he how the Saxons lived years ago, large sandy play area for the little ones and a lovely coffee shop. Also on the site is a lovely walk.

Only 3 miles out of Bury St Edmunds this is a great place for people of all ages. The walks pass through heathland, alongside the river, and around the lakes and can also be extended into the forest across the road for a full variety of landscapes. Given that Suffolk is flat, mostly farmland, and lacking variety, this is a... More

This is a really nice corner in the West side of Suffolk, and really worth a visit. The surroundings of the lake are just stunning. The village is Ok, but to me, what really makes a difference is the Lake and the walks around it.
