We got national Trust memberships for Christmas so didn't pay for entry. We ate in the cafe which was busy but you were served quickly. We had sausage baps and a brownie, all the food was of good quality. They have highchairs available. We took the short walk to the burial ground which looks over fields and you can see... More

We were members of the national trust so visited to have a look around, which was very interesting. They also have good walks around the site and pets are welcome so we visited on several occasions to take our dog for a walk as great scenery

We really enjoyed our latest visit to Sutton Hoo. The Living History Team bring the house to life in a very special way with their depiction of Mrs Pretty's Christmas. Great for the young and older alike. They were superb. The exhibition is very informative and the walks enjoyable. The cafe also offers great service and food. No wonder we... More

This exhibition was one that I have been wanting to visit for many years, and finally getting there I was very excited. Unfortunately I was somewhat underwhelmed, and found the experience disappointing. The whole experience left me feeling sad and dissatisfied, it left questions unanswered and left me setting off home trying to make sense of what I had experienced,... More

A return visit to Sutton Hoo. The exhibition hall has changed slightly, for the better, but Tranmer House is much better. Volunteers are friendly and really helpful.

Would definitely recommend booking onto a tour if you visit to get the full experience. Nice café too - even provide blankets if you wish to sit outside and its a... More

We decided to pay a long over due visit to Sutton Hoo on a crisp sunny autumn day. Starting the visit with a walk we unintentionally took the long route around the area before finally spying the famous mounds, bearing in mind that my other half does not 'do' walking we both had a relaxing ramble. The mounds themselves are... More

Fun times for all the family. There are three main buildings. The first is the reception building which has a shop and restaurant/cafe. Sandwiches, hot food and cakes available. The food is average but i'm not really including this in my rating. The exhibition hall has exhibits and dressing up areas for the children. Certain days they get the reconstructed... More

Sutton Hoo A place I had long wanted to visit but I am afraid that in the end to was a bit of a disappointment despite the attractive setting is attractive. As you enter there are the museum/exhibition centres, tea room and usual offices. I knew all about the ship burial and have seen the treasure in the British Museum.... More
