    The village itself is nice for an hour or two to take the kids and stroll around but not much to it. I would highly recommend going when they have an event going on, which we were lucky to stumble upo...  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
  • Despite amazing structures and recreation of the Anglo-Saxon village, there was a lack of information about the actual site, rather it was more about Anglo-Saxons in general which was restraining for my studies
