Visited Sutton Hoo whilst staying in Suffolk in September 2020. It was a hot & sunny day and very very quiet on our visit. Found the National Trust volunteers to be some of the best I have encountered. They relished in telling us all about Sutton Hoo & really bought it to life. Sadly due to Covid some of the areas were closed. Love the National Trust booking system for visiting. Easy to use & keeps number of visitors to a sensible number. Extremely enjoyable visit. Definitely recommended.

We spent a few hours just wandering around the site and the walking trails. We were glad we had read up before going, as there is little information available when outside. Lovely walking in the breeze and imagining life as it would have been.....and understanding why they had chosen this rather special spot. Visited the small indoor information area, where there are a few reproduction items from the find and the area. Had a coffee and cake in the cafe which were very welcome. Weirdly this meant that the shop was closed when we left the cafe at 1pm.......... shame as we would have made purchases.

We visited here on a Sunday in October and were able to book the arrival time slot that we wanted as it wasn't too busy. We viewed the small exhibition in the house, walked up to see the mounds (unfortunately the tower wasn't open then), had lunch in the cafe (soup which was OK), went round the main exhibition, then did a circular walk of several miles around the nearby river and fields which we enjoyed. Overall we were quite underwhelmed as there didn't seem to be much information about what had actually been found at the site, and with most of the artefacts being in the British Museum there isn't much to see either - even replicas of the more interesting items would be good to see.

Well worth a visit, found the history fascinating. We visited on a cold November day but still enjoyed a short walk to the viewing tower.

Shame the museum isn't open at the moment but you can see some of the artefacts in the British museum so another excuse for a day out. Quite atmospheric at the moment as visitors are limited and the weather adds to the drama if you can put yourself in the shoes of an AngloSaxon. Have to say the stone maps and stainless steel markers are lovely but not accurate - use the map on the wall in the square as you exit the ticket office instead, or the signposts. Learned about the Sutton Hoo Hoard at school but taken 40 odd years to visit.
