My what a size it is, having in the past only seen it from a distance. It is amazing that in the past, without mechanical tools, how such a structure could have been built.

Good car park (free). it would be nice to be able to walk around the hill rather and look from a viewing point. Guide boards at the edge of the mound with interesting info.

As another review writes, Stop, ponder, and wonder... The Silbury Hill is of a similar age and size of the smaller pyramids in Egypt. Amazing what the ancients could do. We are so glad we heard about this site and adjusted our course to visit....More

Silbury Hill is an amazing archaeological site set in an area of great Neolithic history. We visited the Avebury stone circle and the West Kennet long barrow. The hill is off the A4 and has good parking. Unfortunately you can only walk around the hill....More

To stand on the street or atop the nearby West Kennet Long Barrow is to see a large mound and perhaps wonder if it was man-made. It is man-made and it was built around 2400 BC. But my friends and I had hiked to the...More

Only the day of the solstice at Stonehenge will be really crowded. Stonehenge at other times and all the other sites you mention should not be crowded.
