Outstanding museum explaining Anglo Saxon settlement and discovery of burial mounds. Informative but also suitable for children. Some of the priceless finds on display (rest in British Museum). Good walks with lovely views. The bluebells were outstanding. Children's playground and picnic area if you do...More

A National Trust Property which we found incredibly interesting. We learned about the ship burial of an Anglo Saxon King and how Mrs Edith Pretty brought archaeologists to investigate the site. We started by visiting the Exhibition Centre where we watched a 10 minute introductory...More

Interesting museum about the vikings in Suffolk and good displays of actual finds. Decent walks in the grounds with nice views and the interest of ancient burial grounds. Recommended

It was rather chilly and threatening rain but this did not deter us from having a great time. The display and treasure hall is very good, lots of things for the youngsters to do with many easy to follow and read displays. The main house...More

Visited on 30 April 2017 with two other adults. Quite steep entrance fee if you’re not a National Trust member (£8.50 per adult and £9.40 with gift aid) for very little to see. Apart from a few burial mounds which just looked like bits of...More

The site is dedicated to exploring the Anglo Saxon burial mounds on the grounds. There is a small museum which contains some of the finds and tells the story of how they were discovered and what they could represent. Worth starting your visit here. There...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.
