A great piece of history, even though a main road runs so close to it does not diminish it's ethereal import. A Celtic/britonic masterpiece in early natural architecture. People who grade this place 1 star and wonder at its appeal completely miss the point; it...More

Chilly on top but a great view. I would go in the summer rather than a colder season as it makes it more enjoyable

It is worth looking at this historic large hill if passing on the way to Avebury but not as a special trip. It is large and if you think that the builders used bone shovels it is impressive. But at the end of the day...More

Stopped here on the way from Avebury Stones to West Kennet Long Barrow (separate reviews) to admire the hill. The carpark is easily accessed from the main road and there are information boards there explaining the significance and history of the site. It seemed to...More

We visited the Silbury Hill after walking around the nearby Avebury Stone Circle. This site adds very nicely the overall story of Wiltshire's neolithic past.

There's a parking area right nearby with an information board detailing its history. Very impressive and well worth the stop if on the way to somewhere else. About 20 years ago, my husband friends climbed up it!

You really can't miss this extraordinary, heroic stone age structure of chalk on the north side of the A4 near Avebury, the highest man-made mound in Europe. Access is not possible but it can be viewed at leisure from the footpath running from the Avebury...More

Its a large manmade mound built around 2500 BC. Its impressive to see from the A4 road and a must see if you are visiting Avebury. Nothing spectacular really but good to stop by on the way.

Unfortunately we did not have the equipment to climb the hill, there had been a lot of rainfall and around the base and we could not get across as we only had walking boots on. Admired it from a far as the Kennett Barrow is...More

Many theories have been put forward for Silbury Hill’s intended purpose but most have fallen by the wayside as archeology proved them wrong. No burial remains have even been found & of course no written records were left to document its construction. Latest theory is...More
