Sutton Hoo, an ancient Anglo Saxon burial site and archaeological visitor attraction in Woodbridge, Suffolk, plans to reimagine its visitor experience as part of the Releasing the Sutton Hoo Story, which is partially funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The site is a place of remarkable heritage and has produced some of the richest archaeological finds in the UK.

Tricolor was commissioned by the National Trust to deliver the Interpretation and Exhibition Design Plan and radically enhance the visitor experience, making it the most important place in the UK to learn about Anglo-Saxons.

Tricolor worked with the National Trust to develop the interpretation plan as part of the NLHF application, including designing new exhibition spaces within Tranmer House, The Courtyard, and The Hall. Tricolor also helped to design a clear visual identity and pathfinding strategy across the site, encouraging visitors to follow interpreted plans and trails to get the most of their experience.
