About
The Henge Shop is in a unique location in the centre of Avebury, the largest prehistoric stone circle in the world. To honour this unparalleled setting we stock the best quality merchandise, using fair trade or local suppliers wherever possible. We have a wide range of gold, silver and pewter jewellery, large selection of crystals, woollens, tee shirts, hats, dowsing rods, minerals and fossils and books on a variety of subjects from the archaeological to the spiritual and arcane. We are also used as a base by local people who run tours in the area. You will also find Avebury Tarot here, run by Ivan Brownrigg, Tarot reader, mindfulness teacher and meditation leader. He has over 40 years’ experience with the Tarot and distils this knowledge to provide enquirers with profound insights and practical guidance. We also have several beautiful rooms available for therapies and workshops & a delightful conference space, overlooking the ancient standing stones, for audiences of up to 50.

A lovely independent gift shop right by the stone circle
Aug 2020
What a fascinating shop for unusual gifts, staff are very friendly and there were some really unusual things to look at. I personally don’t buy in to all the new age stuff but there are plenty of other interesting crafts, books and jewellery to choose from.

Insightful reading

I visited The Henge Shop this weekend, decided to have a tarot reading with Ivan on the spur of the moment and I’m really happy I did! The reading was insightful and professional and done next to a wonderful view of the stones. I would highly recommend!

Rude, unfriendly staff
Dec 2019 • Family
We visited this shop today. My son purchased a few items with his pocket money. I stood beside him in shock, listening to how the elderly shop assistant said neither please nor thank you and grumbled her questions to my son. When I challenged her, she seemed either oblivious or uncaring that she had been so rude. We come to Avebury periodically. We will not be visiting this shop again. I suppose some tourist shops aren't bothered about manners as they aren't trying to maintain regular custom. A shame though, otherwise it's a very interesting shop.

Some people will love it, some will not. It has a good selection of items, mostly new agey and some weird and colourful hats if you feel you want to connect with the stones. Its worth a look.

Was an interesting shop, well worth looking inside.
May 2019
We had joined the National Trust and so the carpark was free for us. Also we arrived after lunch and enjoyed a peaceful, quiet visit. I enjoyed walking around the standing stones and the old buildings. The National Trust Museum was very interesting and gives you an insight into the history of Avebury. Afterwards we had dinner at the Red Lion Pub which was typical basic pub food and also conveniently located.

Avoid the ice cream stand outside, go for normal cone not waffle!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Avebury is beautiful to visit however avoid peak times if there are planned events on as it is difficult to find parking once the National Trust car park is full
We visited this shop as it was the first one we found serving ice cream outside the shop and wish we had found somewhere else. There was one girl serving and took too long whilst the two owners inside the shop did very little except take payment! Waffle cones were very thin and the ice cream was literally plonked on top precariously. Everyone was moaning about it nearly falling off, people were pushing their ice cream into the cone which were then falling apart. Surprise surprise ours did, straight onto the floor! It was replaced although she did not apologise and I suggest her pushing the ice cream into the cone to avoid this.
I appreciate this is not a review of what was on offer in the shop however this shop sold the ice cream.

Nice enough little tourist shop in Avebury
Sep 2019
Visiting Avebury on an Art trip, popped into the Henge Shop to see what books and gemstones they had for sale.
Whilst its a very interesting little tourist shop, it is very much overpriced and aimed at the tourists, but still interesting to browse for free never the less!
Worth nipping in for a nose around!

I recommend a visit whilst at Avebury. The prices aren't daft and there's plenty to choose from. You can find it easily after using car park on the edge of the village (£6) and following the short walk to the "start" of the stones.
