This mysterious stone circle is thought to have been constructed in Neolithic times between 2500 to 2000 BC by The Beaker people, who might have played a major role in the formation of another eerie ancient site at Stonehenge.

Just love Avebury, the peace and tranquility of walking around the stone, which are beautiful reminders of a long gone age. The walk round is quite easy on the legs. It's a much better example of stones than Stonehenge
£7 to park the car in the field. A bit steep!
You need a guide of some sort to get the most from this, there is little information on site.
The £3 guided tour was great. They were doing 2 a day at 12 &...More
Fascinating walk around this piece of ancient history, complemented by the museum at the Manor.
It's a fair distance to walk and some ground is not level and there are some steps, so need to be reasonably able. We went on a lovely sunny day...More
We were staying in Wiltshire for a couple of weeks and Avebury was on our list of places to visit. We didn't have much of an idea what it would be like. Our first sight of it was driving through after visiting the White Horses...More
Wonderful afternoon spent wandering around this free entry site. The area itself is large & you will need to cross roads to gain entry into the various sites . I would have loved to have been able to read more about the site, through information...More
Visited midweek in May, in the morning, so not busy. Spent a lovely couple of hours walking this free-entry site, between the stones, touching the stones, enjoying the scenery and the company, then lunch at The Red Lion to fortify us (or you could take...More
Fabulous place to walk around with your family, friends and dog. Love being able to get close to the Stones. You can take it at face value or connect with the Ancients, meditate or pop into the wonderful shops. What I love is that you...More
It was just ok; an historic site of prehistoric stones and a circular moat. That's it, oh and the expected shop
Nice walk around the perimeter and a chance to enjoy the site and consider how they moved the stones.
Not exactly the Pyramids or...More
Hi. The route from Salisbury across the plain to Devizes is good open and scenic and the roads are suited to two wheels. You could take in Cane Hill Locks at Devizes before heading NE to Avebury. Silbury Hill and West Kennet... More
Hi. The route from Salisbury across the plain to Devizes is good open and scenic and the roads are suited to two wheels. You could take in Cane Hill Locks at Devizes before heading NE to Avebury. Silbury Hill and West Kennet Longbarrow are also close by to the South of Avebury.

Four hours is plenty and probably includes time for coffee. If you’re visiting by car then split it into two, firstly park in the NT car park and visit the main circle, museum and ideally the manor house (book ahead or as soon as you arrive). Then coffee / snack in the cafe or Red Lion. Then move the car to the Silbury Hill car park, followed by a walk to West Kennet Long Barrow.
If you have any time left over then you can visit Devil’s Den (remains if a burial feature) or Fyfield Down (Sarcen stones all over the hillside).
Enjoy your visit, it’s fantastic
