The burial mounds may be less impressive as a sight but the exhibition is quite astounding. I've known of Sutton Hoo most of my life and I am not clear how I have not managed to visit before. So glad that I did.

I was thinking "Large viking ship and treasure hoard". There is no ship left and the treasure hoard is in the British Museum in London. The exhibition is small but interesting. The mounds are...well.... mounds. House is an interesting snap shot into the era.

Journeyed to Sutton Hoo to discover all about what we thought were Viking burials. We were wrong it is suspected that an Anglo Saxon King Raedwaeld was buried with the longship. The exhibition hall provides plenty of information on the discovery of the burial mounds...More

The best place to start is the exhibition to get a feel for the background of the site. Tranmer House is interesting but you can only view part of the downstairs rooms. The cafe is average NT fare and nothing particularly special. I was rather...More

We had limited time at Sutton Hoo and were happy to arrive just as a walking tour was starting so we thought it would be an efficient way to gain general information about the site. We walked, we stood, our guide showed us some photographs...More

No parking price and yes you can just use the nice tea rooms you pay to see exhibition, the mounds and Mrs Pretty's house but well worth it.
