Learning 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.
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
- 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.
