The beautiful 255 acre estate has far reaching views over the River Deben is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Sutton Hoo is where you will find stories of kings, mysterious mounds and buried treasure.

To help with access to the site Sutton Hoo secured funding for 2 Mountain Trike, MT Push, all terrain wheelchairs which are available to borrow from the visitor centre.

The MT Push all terrain wheelchair is a perfect partnership for both the rider and the person pushing – offering comfort, safety and ease of use. The push handle located behind the rider is where the steering and braking takes place by the riders buddy. With air suspension for comfort when riding over uneven ground and hydraulic brakes for safe stopping.
