While visiting the stone circle, we were surprised to find the Manor open to visitors. My son particularly enjoyed this property as you were able to touch and move objects, sit on seats and even lie on the Queen' s bed! Lots of history here and very friendly staff.

This is a great place to visit, lots to see and do and you are able to sit on the seats beds etc with not one saying no. As usual with a National Trust property it is expensive and the expectation is you will join and seem to get you money back.

A most beautiful manor house & garden set in the equally picturesque village of Avebury. Very soothing gardens, interesting house & pleasant staff. My only quibble was that they had let a TV programme "make over" the interior to fairly appalling effect.

We debated whether to pay the admission and see Avebury Manor but we're glad we did. The house has been reconstructed through a partnership with the BBC and different rooms have been reconstructed for different time periods. The fun part is that they purposely built it for visitors to interact with. There are costumes to try on, you can climb... More

This was a nice house, and the gardens were particularly nice. However it wasn't as nice as a lot of manor houses, and it was fairly expensive. The staff were nice, but I prefer to be left alone while I'm doing my wandering and they were very keen to chat. Worth going to if you're in the area and want... More

I really enjoyed the style of this property. Each room is set in a different era, which was nice to walk around have have a guess where in time you are, there are info cards dotted about confirming that I was usually correct :P. It was nice that it was more interactive than other properties. So you could have a... More

The manor is a beautiful building set in lovely gardens. What is unusual is that none of the contents are original although some of the internal fabric is and each room has been designed around a specific time period from the Tudors to the 1930s. Much of the furniture and decor has been fairhfully reproduced and the thing that makes... More

We visited the manor recently and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The parking is straightforward and we had access to the standing stones, the manor and the other attractions of Avebury. The manor house itself is really different from other National Trust properties in that it is very relaxed about visitors enjoying the place by sitting in the chairs, playing a... More

We recently visited this manor because it was recommended to us and I have to say we were not disappointed. I have read many reviews some good, some bad and it's really down to personal preference. We had stopped going to NT properties because we felt we were being watched all the time and did not feel very comfortable so... More

Was this manor house despoiled or enhanced by the BBC's 'refurbishment'? Certainly a strange collection of differently furnished and decorated rooms, but with no overall consistency or style. A bit weird but with wonderful gardens and a magnificent tea-room.
