Learning at Sutton Hoo

Child explores Anglo Saxon life at Sutton Hoo

Make Anglo-Saxon history come alive and book a class visit to Sutton Hoo. Your students will gain an exclusive insight into life and death in Anglo-Saxon England, with a range of activities available. Our experienced and friendly volunteers will take you back in time with a tour over the burial mounds, let the children become archaeologists for the day and explore our Exhibition Hall and Tranmer House.

School Visits

We can cater for all age groups from Key Stage 1 right through to Key Stage 4.

We also welcome Home Education Groups, International Education Groups, Universities, FE Colleges and Adult Learning Groups. If you wish to book a trip please contact the learning team, using the details below.

For all educational groups, it may be worthwhile in signing up for a National Trust Educational Group Membership. Not only will it be more cost effective, it will also contribute to conservation costs for looking after your special place.


Educational Group Membership

Education Group Membership (EGM) is specially designed to allow education groups free or discounted entry to National Trust places. The different thresholds for the EGM are dependent upon the total number of pupils within your entire school. Any class within the school can then use the EGM during the year that it is valid.
Membership includes:
  • Free term-time admission to all National Trust Properties (excluding weekends)
  • Discount on Sutton Hoo guided activities
  • Free pre-visit trips to help you plan your day out
  • Easy to purchase at Visitor Reception on the day of your visit

All educational visits must still be pre-booked via the Learning Team.
