Take a piece of history home with you
We have partnered with local artisans who are bringing Sutton Hoo’s heritage and landscape to life through a bespoke range of crafts created especially for us. Inspired by the exquisite Anglo -Saxon treasures found in the Royal Burial Ground and the natural landscape that surrounds it, you can find your own treasure infused with the tale of this incredible place.
You can read some of their stories below. What better way to take the story of Sutton Hoo away with you?
You’ll also find a rich selection of your favourite goodies from seasonal National Trust ranges. There’s something for all the family, from toys and books, homeware and outdoor essentials to jewellery and soap!

So whether you’re looking for escape, inspiration or information, our shelves are packed with treasures, including the odd collectable.
There’s also a children’s section arranged at the perfect height for little arms to reach, and a selection of CDs, DVDs, sheet music, guides, jigsaw puzzles and old postcards.
