A site of major archaeological significance for studying the early Anglo-Saxon people, Sutton Hoo is the supposed burial site of Redwald, ruler of the East Angles and the king who led the English people to Christianity. Many of the valuable artifacts found at the site are now on display at the British Museum, but the visitor's center includes a restored Edwardian house and an exhibit hall that holds a selection of recently discovered artifacts, as well as a recreation of the famous burial ship where the remains of a high-ranking man found intact. Read about these remains, the possible great king Redwald, and interact with displays where the items buried with him are showcased. Plan to see Sutton Hoo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Woodbridge vacation builder.

  • Had a lovely day in wonderful nature and got more knowledgeable about the mixing of cultures before the viking's made a mash of it. Though it is not the biggest place it is perfect for a field day or family day. The house of Mrs. Pretty was also a joyful experience brought to life by the staff.
