Sutton Hoo is home to an Anglo-Saxon Royal Burial Ground overlooking the River Deben in south-east Suffolk. The Sutton Hoo Society does not own or operate the visitor centre at Sutton Hoo, which is managed by the National Trust. For opening hours and other visitor information please refer to the National Trust website.
The Sutton Hoo Society was founded in 1984 to provide practical support to the Sutton Hoo Research Project, directed by Professor Martin Carver. Following the completion of the excavations in 1991, the society acted as guardians of the site and continued to give guided tours and funded ongoing research. Guided tours are available throughout the year but dates do vary, so check in with the National Trust reception team when you arrive at Sutton Hoo as to what is available on the day of your visit.
Over the years we have attracted a world-wide membership, from members of the public who are fascinated by the story of Sutton Hoo, to experts in the field of Anglo-Saxon history and archaeology.
