Relaxed Time

Sutton Hoo's new relaxed time is aimed especially at visitors who would appreciate a quieter experience. During this time we are taking steps to help visitors who are living with autism or dementia.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

From 10.00am to 12.00pm on the last Sunday of each month join us for ‘Relaxed Time’. In this time we will be offering a quieter experience, to help visitors living with autism or dementia. The aim, however, is to still give a great experience of visiting us here at Sutton Hoo.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
