I had seen the BBC programme some time ago that took you through the houses renovation and had wanted to visit and see for myself.We were not disappointed. It is a beautiful house set in intresting ground having the stone circle nearby. The gardens that surround... More

I live in the village and have taken visitors to Avebury Manor numerous times. The volunteers are knowledgeable and approachable. Having each room represent a different period of history is a clever concept and visitors enjoy being able to try out the furniture, fixtures and clothing. The walled gardens are delightful.

We visited with an adult niece who hadn't seen the TV series about the manor project. Therefore to be able to interact with everything in the house was a novel experience. The room attendants were helpful and very willing to chat about the different room styles. It was also nice to see some of the younger children dressing up and... More

The BBC have recreated each room on view in the manor focussing on different periods. It is very child friendly, they are allowed to touch everything. My favourite room was the kitchen, looked much like many original french farmhouse kitchens today. The gardens weren't too fussy, not overly weeded or planted but I found the dahlia planting inside the box... More

This is just brilliant. National Trust have cast off their stuffy image and let you interact with the house. The staff in the house are engaging and you can lie on the beds, play snooker and pick anything up. Everyone had a wonderful time. My tip would be to go when it is likely to be less busy, so you...

This is an unusual stately home because each room has been designed to reflect a different period in the house's history in collaboration with the BBC. The guides in each room are very enthusiastic and make the experience interesting especially for children . There are things to discover in every room and you are encouraged to sit on the furniture... More

Although I have visited the Avebury landscape for 25 years, I have never had the opportunity in all those years to see the historic Avebury Manor. The recent renovation collaboration between the National Trust and the BBC has brought new interest in the property and I took the chance on a recent trip to see how it had turned out.... More

Met a friend here on a rainy day with children aged between 5 and 10. We were spoilt for choice of things to do. The barn had lots of interactive displays which we didn't have enough time to look at properly. The younger kids though enjoyed the dressing up and rubbings area. As it was the summer holidays they had... More

I was hoping for more history, more engagement with volunteers, a guided tour, something. Reading the provided cards in each room did not make for an enriching experience.

Second time we have been to Avebury Manor, and we still enjoyed interacting with the props. The vegetable garden was amazing - biggest onions I have ever seen!
