Sutton Hoo, Woodbridge

4.1
#1 of 62 in Museums in Suffolk
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. Put Sutton Hoo into our Woodbridge trip itinerary builder tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Amazing place to learn about the Viking’s. Some very interesting stuff to learn about. Free wheelchairs and mobility scooters to use their. Good cafe that serves yummy food. Loads of stuff to explore around the area. Overall a very good place for the family especially if you have a National Trust membership. If not it is at a very good price and definitely worth the money.
  • Very atmospheric place with fascinating history of how a local amateur archeologist found the amazing treasure of an Anglo-Saxon Kings burial ship . Great looking round the landowners house set in the 1930's also. Although would have loved to see a kitchen also. Lovely walks round the estate, near the river. On site restaurant, second hand bookshop and small NT shop complete the visiting experience. Worth going round with a guide to the burial mounds to bring it all to life. Heard there are plans to extend the facilities which can only enhance this lovely place.
  • Interesting walk around site - you choose route best for you. Exhibition informative & well presented. Cafe excellent with good choice of foods. Toilets good as is parking. Definitely worth being a member.
  • A great location for walks and good restaurant.We visit a couple of times each month. Exhibitions also good. I have been in three times and brought family members too.u
  • I bought the family here yesterday, we spent the whole day. Fantastic. Something for everyone. We did the guided tour with Jonathan, what a lovely man and he gave a great tour. Dave the money guy was incredible, great stories. My kids were entranced. Highly recommended!!
