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.

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

we visited over October half term and thoroughly enjoyed our visit which was made very interesting as a result of the excellent tour guide who explained everything so well. 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

This is a great place for a family day out. The burial mounds are fascinating and there are beautiful woodland walks around the area. There is also a large house restored to 1930s grandeur where you can relax. The museum is a good way to understand the archaeology. Try the cafe too, the food is very nice.

We visited Sutton Hoo over the weekend and it was rather wonderful. Went for an early morning walk in the sunshine to see the burial grounds. And lots of pigs wandering around with their open pens (being farmed nearby). The exhibition was great but think they could introduce some interactive elements for kids and adults alike. The house is wonderful... More

Sutton Hoo is splendid. The stunning finds discovered by a local archaeologist in the late 1930s are memorable for their age (over 1300 years old) and the amazing standard of the jewellers work. There is en excellent museum to recreate the buried ship. Also you can follow clear signs along about 1/2 mile to the mounds were the finds were... More
