Educational visits

Anglo-Saxon re-enactor

Having recently won Suffolk's Museum of the Year for Learning and Access, West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village is a perfect trip for school pupils who are studying the Anglo- Saxons as part of the national curriculum. There will be the combination of group discussions, handling of objects and talks.

Fees: £5 per child with accompanying adults free.

Investigate Anglo-Saxon life through original objects and using the archaeological clues to find out about the first English at West Stow:

  • explore experimental reconstructions of buildings
  • handle replica objects
  • study finds from the site in the Anglo-Saxon Museum
  • take part in lively group discussions led by staff about the Anglo-Saxons, encouraging groups to draw their own conclusions.

School Pupils

Special educational activities for December.

Book a schools session at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village during December and choose one of two additional activities. West Stow's Winter Schools Session will include an exploration of the village and museum, along with a choice between:

  • Be a Creative Curator! Set up your own table top museum using real and replica Anglo Saxon objects through identification and categorisation.


  • Tales in the Hall. Listen to an Anglo Saxon story told by a costumed learning officer in the Anglo-Saxon hall with the warmth of a real fire.
