Sutton Hoo

This hauntingly beautiful 255-acre estate, with far-reaching views over the River Deben, is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Walk around the ancient burial mounds and discover the incredible story of the ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and his treasured possessions.

Come face to face with your ancestors and explore the award-winning exhibition, the full-size reconstruction of the burial chamber, stunning replica treasures and original finds from one of the mounds, including a prince’s sword. Look inside the Edwardian house or enjoy the beautiful seasonal colours on an estate walk.

Facilities at Sutton Hoo include a licensed restaurant, a gift shop selling exclusive ranges inspired by Sutton Hoo artefacts, and three holiday cottages on the estate offering self catering accommodation.
