I principally went to Avebury to visit the stones. However I dropped in here as well. The guides are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It had been used in one or two television programmes, Alexander Keiller (the man who excavated the stones) had lived there for a while and Queen Anne may have stopped there too.

My understanding is that the makeover of this house by the BBC is fairly controversial. To sum up: every room has been decorated in the style of a different era. The objects are not authentic period artifacts but rather replicas, many of them quite painstakingly recreated based on originals. The advantage, however, is that since you are essentially walking a... More

We stayed here 5 hours. ( planned only two ). Museums free in with associated heritage tickets. But for family ticket the national trust house is great value. Hands on kids stuff a real highlight for our 8 and 6 year olds. Touch, open, explore and well enjoy the whole house. Jump on beds. Etc etc. The gardens beautiful and... More

What a little gem right on my doorstep, was great to be in a property and be able to touch things, and feel more involved with the history of the rooms, each room had a friendly enthusiastic guide that also helped make it more interesting, loved the garden areas also, will look toward to returning again soon

As the National trust took over this house empty, with the help of the BBC, this has been authentically furnished, Which means you can touch and use every thing. A great experience.

How often do you visit a historical site and get to touch and interact with the things that you are seeing? Not often - but at Avebury Manor you can! Working with the BBC, each room has been decorated to a different time period in the Manor's history - Tudor, Georgian, Victorian, 20th Century. This gives this site a completely... More
