On this full-day tour from Glastonbury, you’ll see the world-famous Stonehenge, plus several other landmarks that are also rich in history and mysticism. Following pickup from your area accommodation, travel via comfortable coach to Stonehenge. After a hearty pub lunch, continue to Avebury—the largest Neolithic stone circle in Europe—before visiting the pyramid-like mound at Silbury Hill. As you go, your guide will share facts and stories about these one-of-a-kind monuments.

this is national trust property so if you are not a member they will charge you to get in. It is by timed ticket which can be got at the entrance. The house is interesting as each room is done in a different style of history, and unlike a lot of places you can sit in the chairs, lay on the bed and look in drawers. also worth visiting the museums to see about the stone circles

I really enjoyed visiting this property and seeing the various periods the rooms were portrayed in. The gardens are lovely too and there was an art exhibition on at the time. The property featured in the Manor Reborn series which assisted in its renovation.

Read that the Manor was decorated for Christmas. It's only 20 miles from the house but this was our first visit. Each room is decorated to a different period, from Tudor to the 1930's The highlight was the Georgian Dining Room with a series of small are trees, decorated withe the 12 days of Christmas. The first with a partridge and a pair of turtle doves , all in miniature and the last with 12 little lords. Tried Queen Anne's bed (a bit high off the ground for my wife) and relaxed in the 1930's drawing room. Not stuffy at all, You can touch everything except the handpainted wallpaper. Be sure to try out the exercise chair.

I’m starting to get attuned now to serious traffic problems on the last 400 yards of approach to a National Trust, problems that can be enough to bust a planned visit. We persevered with the queues in the quite small NT car park and found a space. £4 if you’re not a member although since they don’t have attendants there in winter, I wonder if it matters. Avebury is a World Heritage site - and on this busy day, it was showing all the signs of over-visiting. Sections are roped-off and the remaining pathways turning to mud. There was only one restaurant open and it was struggling - with menu items running out, mistakes being made with orders and long waits. The Manor itself doesn’t fit conveniently into a particular period - inside, it’s a rather pokey affair and the attempted theming the rooms into different periods was well past its best. All of which leads me to my major beef with the NT - guys, you’ve done a brilliant job in opening up the heritage in your care in the last few years - more inclusive, more family friendly and transformed the at best quirky opening hours of yore. But your infrastructure and I mean in particular the things you can do something about like food and access (in practical terms for most sites, car parking) is, despite updates, stuck the genteel days of the 1970s. On this visit we saw several people look at the food queue and decide not to bother - bad experiences and lost opportunities - do you try to sense how much of a problem this is for you? You can do more to gear up your catering offer to deal with large numbers of people.
