Guided Mound tours
Drink in the haunting beauty of this Anglo Saxon site with a tour that takes you onto the famous Mound 1 burial. You will be in the safe and expert hands of a Sutton Hoo Society guide who will bring to life the warrior leader laid to rest and the extraordinary excavations at a time when Britain was on the brink of a war. Please allow 1.15–1.30hrs for the tour and dress for the outdoors.
On certain days, pop into the exhibition hall to hear a talk. Please allow 30 minutes.
Prefer to do things at your own pace? Explore the mounds or house in peace between tours.
Relax in style in Mrs Pretty's beautiful 1930's Edwardian house.
