Relax as a family

Whatever you like to do to relax, we’ve got the perfect spot for your family.  Little ones that need to run off a bit of steam can enjoy Sutton Hoo’s green spaces whilst you take a nearby seat on one of our picnic benches.

For those looking to lounge, grab a picnic blanket and head to your favourite place to soak up the sun or a great view - or why not use them to snuggle up on colder days?

And the adventure can still continue even if little legs get tired, as our buildings are all pushchair and buggy friendly.

Feeding your brood

If all the excitement has made you peckish, Keepers' café, located adjacent to Tranmer House, is open from 11.00am - 3.00pm daily offering a range of takeaway snacks and hot and cold drinks.
