  • We began and ended our visit with time in the play-area, to our 8 year-old's delight. With a deep bed of sand throughout and several benches for onlookers, we were all happy to spend time here, feelin...  more »
  • The kids weren't impressed at all ...boring was one verdict ...not enough for kids of today Not worth the effort to get to unless it's just personal / archeological interest maybe  more »
  • A lot of effort has gone into making the village as accurate as possible. Great to bring kids to for a short visit, but can't sustain interest for a whole day. Good museum and café.  more »

  • In all honesty I wasn't expecting too much but we took the kids and spent a whole day doing a hobbit trail. The reproduced Saxon buildings give a fascinating insight into how our ancestors lived. Large, free, children's play area (although there is a charge for parking, maximum £2, unless you have bought a yearly ticket for the site)
  • Brilliant Little Historic Attraction. One of my families regular visits. See how the Anglo-Saxons used to live with and how their houses were built. Regular events with people living in the village working the forge weaving and working the land. Annual Pass gets you into some of the museums in Bury St Edmunds too and parking at Nowton Park. Well worth it. Cafe (open every day) is spacious and friendly with a range of tasty lunches, cakes and snack. Wheelchair and buggy friendly. Lots of nice walks though the forests and round the lake. A great place to go on a sunny Sunday. Oh, and my son loves the climbing frame in the play park too.
  • Very interesting, you learn about archaeology and historiography as well as the anglo saxons. Great for kids. Cafe not amazing.
  • watch out for the over zealous parking attendant. parking is not free but layby parking is
  • Great playground for the kids. Events here are wonderful but on days with no event it can be a little disappointing. The café is just about the most disorganised place I've ever been to. To the point of hilarity.
