Ramble with the Ranger

Take a ramble with our Ranger, Jonathan, and see Sutton Hoo from a different perspective.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Enjoy a guided walk, sometimes off the beaten track, and see Sutton Hoo in a new light. Jonathan will point out who lives in a dray and who drills holes in trees with just their beaks.

Whether you're a nature lover or just have a passing interest, Jonathan will bring the site to life through the animals and birds who make Sutton Hoo their home.

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
