Full details

Shortly before the outbreak of the Second World war, the burial ship of an Anglo Saxon King and his extraordinary treasures were unearthed by archaeologist basil Brown. These ancient graves had kept their secrets for 1300 years but what was found here has changed the perception of the past forever.

On arrival, we will be having a guided tour of this burial ground. Also available to visit is Edith Pretty’s country house, set in the relaxing style of the 1930’s, which takes you back to the time of the remarkable discovery.

There are trails and paths around the site which offer stunning views over the River Deben.

On site, there is a cafe and gift shop. There is limited accessibility on this site, especially the grounds, with uneven slopes and undulating terrain. Access to the house is ground floor only. There are adapted toilets at reception.

Expected time back is around 19.30
