Visited with two teenage boys who enjoyed the trip as much as we did. Great museum - don't miss the film at the start as it really helps. Weather was really chilly and it is on top of a hill so dress warm. We all loved it - lovely café too. It actually felt quite a magical place, regardless of... More

This is an extremely well organised museum. There is a great visitor centre with interactive exhibits, artefacts and an informative film presentation. A very pleasant shop and good cafe. The burial mound tour is also interesting.

A site that is well run by the National Trust with great information and an excellent café. There is a small, but interesting museum that contains the story of the discovery of the burial mounds and something about the Saxons who raised them. There are replicas of the famous helmet and other artefacts to see. There is also a pleasant... More

This was quite an inspiring visit, knowing so little of the dark ages of English history this was a real eye-opener. The skill of the craftsman, the attention to detail and well set out in a most interesting exhibition. The site itself is fascinating and the walks make this a great place to visit. The staff were excellent, friendly and... More

A great day out with the opportunity to read up on some history about the heritage / history / beginnings of the English. As you'd expect from the National Trust, everything is of a very high quality, is very informative and is excellently set out and sequenced. There's plenty to do here, with a museum with reconstructions and displays, a... More

I really enjoyed the walk around the site. The children were entertained with the book they were given with its own quest. Wouldn't pay full price but as national trust members was worth a visit. The museum wasn't quite so impressive though the children enjoyed dressing up in the helmets etc. Worth stopping on route to our Easter get away..

We spent half a day here visiting the exhibition which was full of good displays and information. The two walks ( I recommend both) were glorious and the scenery superb

I have always wanted to visit this site. The museum has some incredible artifacts to study. There is a nice shop and a good restaurant also some short walks to do, one around the Viking mounds and others that do the wider estate. The house is definately worth a look around.
