Back for another visit after seven or more years and always interesting to see how such places develop. New this season is Tranter House a1910 (Edwardian) building previously owned by the owners of the estate who gave it to the Trust. Nicely presented with three main rooms and some of the service rooms. Great for children with lots to see... More

Brilliant exhibition and very informative, good restaurant and cafe, the 1930s house was good too and you get to have a walk around outside.

This was a revisit, but none the worse for that. The walks to the mounds are lovely with stunning views over to Woodbridge. The museum gets better and better and the NT cafe excellent

There is so much to do here. The Exhibition is great with hands on displays. The walks are well signed post and of various levels. The Pretty's house is great! Well done. Well worth being a Nation Trust Member.

This was not our first visit to Sutton Hoo. We had friends staying and decided this would be a good outing. We decided to join one of the guided tours around the site, which reminded us of our first visit long before the National Trust took over the site. Joining a tour and being told about the history of the... More

We decided to visit mainly because we are National Trust members and could get in free. Very busy but ample car parking and clearly signposted. The museum, although perhaps small, housed lots of information and displays that even interested the children. National Trust volunteers were just inside the doorway and warmly welcomed us and explained some bits and pieces, highlighting... More

Excellent tour with David who brought a real insight into the place as well as the more recent history. I had visited before a couple of times but not when the exhibition was open or the tours were on. Walked along the river from Woodbridge to Sutton Hoo. Really fascinating and lots of wildlife too.
