Avebury is an impressive site, dating from 3500 B.C. The area was first excavated by a local clergyman in the 1922. It is an enormous site, about 3/4 of a mile around. It was a surprise to drive to Avebury and see large scattered stones...More

Very impressive and moving place to visit with car parking a few hundred metres away. It is amazing to go inside and view several chambers whilst wondering what our Neolithic ancestors were thinking and doing when they constructed the long barrow. There are also fine...More

This is a great spot, though not noticed by many as it is close to the eye-catching Silbury hill. There is free parking in a layby on the main road and a small sign pointing to a path across a cow pasture. It takes about...More

Always enjoy the walk along the country side to visit this burial mound. The Neolithic structure will leave you wondering.

Imagine, we're seeing and touching something that was built 3600 BC. But storms and rain move dirt and fill in caves and shelters so this must have been a lot deeper. It was used for burials for 1,000 years! So much has taken place there...More

Quite a trek up a hill, not suitable if unfit. Wow what a view. Lovely to be able to interact with the stones and to take a moment to appreciate the age & history of the site.

Easy to get to via Parking layby nearby (700 metres from the Silbury Hill car park). Although a kissing style gate and a path up a small incline in a open field may prevent large prams or wheelchairs from gaining access. I was lucky to...More

This was part of my girlfriend and my historical day that started with Stonehenge, the Avebury stones and Silbury Hill. These placese are magical and mysterious. Good shoes needed, take a torch, fortunately we keep one in our car.

The most atmospheric of all the Neolithic sites in Wiltshire. It is often overlooked by visitors who head straight to the nearby Avebury and miss this archaeological wonder. A bit of a trek to get to but well worth a walk. Often you can find...More
