Beat the Winter Blues at Sutton Hoo

Escape to warmer climes and discover more about the exotic travels of Edith Pretty in 1901.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

2018 marks a significant anniversary in women's suffrage. To celebrate this landmark we are celebrating many of the women who have greatly contributed to the history of Sutton Hoo.

We are starting off the year with a pop-up exhibition on the travels of Edith Pretty, the land owner of Sutton Hoo at the time of the dig. Come in from the cold and step into exotic, far away places like Japan, India and America and find out more about what Edith and her family got up to on their ten month cruise.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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

 

*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
