Undisturbed for 1’300 years, an Anglo-Saxon King and his treasured possessions were unearthed days before the outbreak of the Second World War, changing perceptions of the past. You can discover more of the fascinating story by exploring the ancient burial mounds. The site also has stunning replica as well as original finds from the mounds and a reconstruction of the king’s burial chamber.
Visitors can sit, touch and relax inside Edith Pretty’s country house and enjoy beautiful seasonal colours of this atmospheric landscape on estate walks.
There is a licensed café serving home made food. Don’t miss the Gift shop selling exclusive ceramics and jewellery as well as the second hand bookshop.
There are events all year including living history, wildlife/nature walks, archaeology trench, quizzes, trails, children’s play area and dressing up clothes!
