Sutton Hoo & Aldeburgh

 

Now featured in the 2021 British drama film starring Carey Mulligan & Ralph Fiennes Sutton Hoo is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Walk around the ancient burial mounds and discover the incredible story of the ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and his treasured possessions. Come face to face with your ancestors and explore our award-winning exhibition, the full-size reconstruction of the burial chamber, stunning replica treasures and original finds from one of the mounds, including a prince's sword.

 

This afternoon we visit Aldeburgh a small seaside town on the unspoilt East Suffolk coast. In the 16th Century it was a thriving port and shipbuilding area, becoming a fishing village and seaside resort in the 19th Century. Enjoy the miles of unspoilt shingle coastline and heath lands of this remarkable area. There are many excellent restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets - not forgetting the 'famous' Aldeburgh fish and chip shop.
