This is a place full of atmosphere and well worth visiting if you want to know about the history of the area and get an insight into the Anglo Saxon way of life and culture. The exhibition hall is just the right size, taking about an hour to look around and absorb all the information. The visitor guides were very... More

Sutton Hop has been updated since our last visit about three years ago, with very interesting historic information. There are some stunning reproductions of Saxon artifacts, as well as museum grade copies and originals.

Visited both Sutton Hoo exhibition and Tranmer House. The exhibition was very informative and laid out well. Good introduction video to begin your visit and learn all about the Saxon settlement found there. The house that Edith Petty lived in was also very interesting. Recreated in the style of the 1930's, and very nostalgic. Well recommended. As a disabled person... More

Excellent access from the car park with large grounds and restaurant to entice visitors. The exhibition tells the story of the settlement in an easy to understand way with plenty of simulations, graphics, pictures and models. The volunteers were well versed and could offer opinion, known facts and ideas clearly and with enthusiasm. If one is in the area and... More

As members of NT we decided to visit as we were in the area. Most definitely 5* and the reason why is this:- The car park is right next door to reception which is where you check in or purchase your tickets etc. Also inside is a shop, toilets & cafe. From the reception there are several walks some long... More

Most of this attraction is outside with easy walking. We had visited Sutton Hoo many years ago when there wasn't the expensive shop and reception area which is now reflected in the expensive entry fee!

As members of the National Trust we thought we should visit Sutton hoo as we had never previously done so The facilities are good but there is a bit of a walk from the parking and main buildings and exhibition hall to the actual burial mound where the Viking ship was excavated from. The Anglo Saxon articles displayed in the... More

Sutton Hoo is a National Trust property with a difference. It is not an historic house, but a site of historic significance. There are excellent walks, especially if you have a dog, and at the end of April through May, the bluebell wood is ablaze with colour. I would have given this attraction four stars, but it is deeply disappointing... More
