Truly stunning and moving place - recommend 'On Silbury Hill' by Adam Thorpe to give you a real flavour off what to expect or a reflection after your visit. We live locally, but each time we visit or see a new view of Silbury from a walk it is like a new experience. Incredible to think about the ancient people who created this special hill all those years ago. Take a while to consider and imagine......

It's worth seeing for sure. Basically what you see is what you get and for that reason it would be a good idea to google it as if will enhance the visit knowing the history.

Stopped to view this special man made hill but disappointed to find it not accessible to the public with fences to stop getting close & no entry signs. On way back we actually saw several people who had climbed the fences to walk up the hill & sit at the top! There is a car park but costs £2 or a couple of lay bys on the road which are just as good for viewing it.

We came across Silbury Hill quite by accident when we became lost on our way to Avebury. Must have been pure synchronicity as this is the most amazing place. Easily observed from a lay-by on the adjacent road. Pictures do not do this place justice. Rises majestically from the totally flat landscape in a completely unnatural way. Looks otherworldly. Amazing to think this is the highest prehistoric man made mound in Europe. Created with no metal tools around 2400 BC. Calculated it took 18 million man hours to create. Equivalent to 500 people working full time for 15 years. Totally amazing & a must visit.

Having spotted a rare lay-by vacancy on the main road we stopped to admire this monument. We were pleased to find that aspiring climbers are put off by the lack of access but we found a useful information board on its 2500 year history on the nearby footpath to the West Kennett Long Barrow on the other side of the road.
