#1 of 49 in Museums in Suffolk
Ruin Historic Site
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.

  • Love this place in summer or winter - beautiful surroundings and the cafe is lovely. Some beautiful things in the gift shop also.
  • Not much to see at the site, if I'm honest, but they've done a good job with the exhibition and treasury, which is very interesting.
  • Great way to grasp the long, long history of England as a nation dreamt of, built and created by immigrants. Also a lot of fun!
  • Excellent exhignition and guides informative and helpful. Definitely recommend.
  • Sutton Hoo is historically very educational, with great walks, a cafe to top up rumbling stomachs + a book shop amongst all the other activitys make this a perfect day out. The National Trust do a great job here. Parking can get a little busy so best to arrive a:m period.
