- In 1998 Sutton Hoo was given to The National Trust but was not open to the public until 2002. Today visitors can enjoy the atmospheric beautiful scenery, walk in the footsteps of our ancestors and witness the resting place possibly of King Raedwald himself. The National Trust’s award winning exhibition hall contains some of the original and replica treasures from excavations. Located closely to the reception is a café that is perfect for a well deserved rest after a magnificent walk to the burial mounds. Most recently in 2010 Tranmer House opened for the first time to the public where visitors are taken back in time to the 1930s. Still today the burial mounds of Sutton Hoo remain a mystery.
