  • Leading speakers


The emphasis of the Study Days is on the quality of the presenters.  We choose only speakers who are widely recognised for their specialist knowledge based upon current research and who are also effective communicators with good presentation skills. Many are national or international experts in their field and have appeared on, or been consultants to TVn museums and the media.
  • Time to learn and discuss


Study Days normally start at 10.15am and finish about 4pm allowing time to wander the grounds of the Sutton Hoo estate and the burial site itself.
  • Personal attention

The Study Days usually have no more than about 30 participants to ensure that you can have the chance for a dialogue with the speakers and with other participants.
  • Historic location


Most Study Days take place in The Old Court within sight of the burial mounds at Sutton Hoo, courtesy of the National Trust.
  • Value for money
Study Days cost no more than £38, which includes a full day of lectures from 10:15am to 4pm, access to the NT site, parking, coffee, tea and biscuits throughout the day, and access to the NT exhibition.  You can bring a picnic lunch or eat in the excellent National Trust Kings River Cafe with views down to the River Deben. If its your first Study Day then you can come at the introductory rate of just £25.
