Sutton Hoo is best known for being the site of the Saxon burial ship but it has other gems. the guides at Tranmer House will give you a detailed account of what life was like there in the 20th Century. There are also wonderful walks overlooking the Deben Estuary. It is also possible to buy snacks and meals and to... More

We spent a few days in Suffolk in 2009 specifically so we could visit Sutton Hoo and we weren't disappointed. We came back in 2014 and spent more time exploring the site. The exhibition was very busy (mid-July) on both occasions but is a must. However, the walks within the site are well-worth it and I imagine it would be... More

Always things to do for old and young especially during holiday periods. Great museum/ exhibition. If you like walking take in the atmospheric mounds with a guide or walk further around the site.

This is a fascinating place to see, to learn about the Sutton Hoo treasure and some local history. The walks are gorgeous, look for the bluebells in Spring.They are a sight to see! And the restaurant is excellent. Great place to bring kids for good walks and some painless learning!

we had a very enjoyable trip to Sutton Hoo at new year. The exhibition was very good and well worth seeing.. The grounds are laid out beautifully and, had the weather been less cold, we would have spent more time exploring the barrows and paths.. The cafe food was very good indeed and we enjoyed a very tasty, good value... More

We took our 11 year old daughter to this attraction as she had heard of the Treasure at school. The indoor exhibition area has a short film to whet the appetite, and some good exhibits eg a skeleton in the floor, a mock up of a burial mound interior, a chance to dress up in Saxon gear including helmets. There... More

Although the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable I'm afraid I was disappointed with the number of replica items in the exhibition hall - I had hoped to see far more of the original finds from the Anglo-Saxon buried ship most of which are now housed in the British Museum.
