Spectacular museum (and take the walking tour to the mounds)

My husband and I are English professors, so we know a lot about Anglo-Saxon culture and literature. But we were still impressed with this museum, which would suit everyone. We had... read more

My husband and I are English professors, so we know a lot about Anglo-Saxon culture and literature. But we were still impressed with this museum, which would suit everyone. We had visited about 10 years before, but this time we paid to take the walking tour to the mounds with a wonderful guide (a grey-haired man), which is a real... More

A fantastic place but go when it is warmer. The wind from the river is quite chilling. The exhibit is most excellent. Plenty of space to park.

Very pleasant couple of hours spent here, starting in the NT cafe with lovely cakes and drinks. As is pretty normal the staff are pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. We took the short circular path to the burial mound complex which by this time was set against a stone grey sky which did add to the sense of the place both... More

Went a couple of times last Summer. Once with an elderly gentleman suffering from early Alzheimer's. He loved watching the videos, seeing all the artefacts, and the scones in the cafe went down very well.!The staff all very friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful - keen to impart their information. The other time my husband and I went for one of... More

Tried to go earlier in the week,website said open but that was only the grounds not the exhibition or cafe. So we went back on 11th February which was the first open day. Good museum, copies as originals are in British Museum. Short film interesting but hard to hear as guides were talking all the time near the door. Intesting... More

Arrived to find a scruffy board saying it was shut in Jan and part of Feb opening again 11 Feb (the day we return) Perhaps they should spend a... More

We visit regularly for walks and the restaurant but this was the first time my (nearly 90 yr old) Mum had been. She managed to walk up to the first large mound before a welcome sit down in Tranmer House. She then spied the piano and was thrilled to be able to play it! The guides were lovely and explained...

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
