Liked the exhibits and the café. Loved walking outside on a sunny day. Have been twice before over about 30 years - interesting to see how it changes. Staff very helpful.
Had been putting off visiting this National Trust property as I feared it would just be mounds of grass and not much else, how wrong I was. This is a terrific place to visit with a very informative exhibition giving the history of the site, both the Viking side and all about the woman who owned the land and started... 更多
Visited this wonderful place (National Trust) whilst on holiday at Aldeburgh. Easy to find - lot's of brown tourist signs! The display is excellent and shows much of the history of the 'find' and excavation of this burial site. There are some superb replica swords, helmets and other artefacts which help the visitor get a real flavour of the history... 更多
I had looked forward to visiting Sutton Hoo, the concept of seeing something so incredibly old seemed attractive - ancient history brought to life - except that it isn't, well not for me. It was just like the dry history lessons of 60 years ago that were so boring at school - which almost put me off history for life.... 更多
Everyone has heard of Sutton Hoo, but to visit the site is well worth the experience. A good walk to the mounds leads to an atmospheric site completely surrounded by countryside. Good visitor centre (as expected from the National Trust) and you can also visit the former owners house.
If visiting you have to get on one of the guided tours. The lady that did ours was brilliant. Her knowledge was excellent. The tour does cost extra, but it's worth it. On the downside there is very little to see and we were done in a few hours. Definitely not a whole day out. There is a decent sized... 更多
We did the walking tour, which really brought the site alive. Our guide provided an interesting insight into why the site might have been chosen as a burial site and its place in Anglo Saxon history. The site as a whole is well laid out, and the exhibition is interesting. Food in the cafe was good and sitting outside on... 更多
Whilst holidaying in Suffolk we chose to visit Sutton Hoo, a National Trust venue. We were not quite sure what to expect but were not disappointed. These ancient burial mounds are quite amazing. There is a well marked path for you to take around them and a viewing platform. The day we visited there was a craft fair on with... 更多
Classic National Trust - wonderful as usual. The volunteer who gave a presentation about the silver dishes was a lovely man who moved me by saying he was doing it all in memory of his dad, who guarded the site when the digging was still under wraps from the press. All the volunteers actually make every visit so special -... 更多
Surely, only in England could you make a major tourist attraction out of a few grassy mounds on a wid-swept hillside. Sutton Hoo, close to Woodbridge in Suffolk, set the archaeological word alight in the 1930's when the unrobbed remains of a Saxon ship burial were discovered under a large mound of grass in a Suffolk field. 80 years later,... 更多
Sutton Hoo is close tot he very pretty and interesting Town of Woodbridge. The Hoo is well signed and there is ample parking. We hold National Trust membership, so there was no cost to enter and we chose to do the walk first. With spring bringing out the buds and foliage, the grounds looked strikingly lovely and made the ancient... 更多
One of my main reasons for visiting Suffolk was to visit Sutton Hoo and it did not disappoint. It is easy to access though like others before us we ended up at the Dairy Farm first! The visitor centre is well designed and excellent with plenty of parking, clean facilities and a good cafe. The staff were friendly and enthusiastic.It... 更多
