An amazing place to learn a little about the Anglo Saxon race Enland eventually became and to learn about the burial practices of the early residents some 1300 years ago. The museum is well set out. Some of the treasures found are displayed but unfortunately the bulk is in the British Museum. Lots of activities for children and lots of... More

A good place to visit with lots to see and a good restaurant all in lovely countryside, only downside is, there is a car park charge as well as entrance fee.

Great historic site with well designed museum / visitor centre. Shame most of the exhibits are 'over polished replicas'. Informative and friendly staff.

The visitor centre was great and very informative but apart from that I didn't feel I got much for my £8 entrance fee. The walk around is nice but it is just that - a walk. Apart from a few burial mounds near the start it is just a nice stroll through woodland. Seemed a bit pricey for what there... More

Sutton Hoo is extraordinary. A well put together exhibition with many pictures showing the archaeological digs. Lots of exhibits from the burial mounds. Very cheery staff more than willing to answer questions.

I had been looking forward to this for monthsvand was not disappointed. Easy parking,well laid out and interesting. Did it matter the best bits are in the British Museum? Not at all. The museum section is informative and we went to the talk on the warrior and the horse which was excellent. The mounds are a walk away and fairly... More

Last time we were here to visit, it was only open at weekends (shame).. but it was March. Fast forward a few years and here we were again and boy was it worth the wait!!! Blustery and bracing day and we were guided by a very knowledgeable man, who had the answers to our questions and told us what we... More

It isn't that cheap, but still well worth a visit. There is one big room with replica's and some originals of the things found at Sutton Hoo (most of the real stuff is at British Museum) which is well laid out, with a good level of info. Also the old manor house has been furnished 1930's style and has some... More

Probably the best National Trust venue we have visited for all round enjoyment and interest. Exhibition centre very well presented and informative and the site of the burial mounds when viewed from 'viewing tower' gives a great appreciation of the scale and construction of the site. Well worth a visit.
