This is a fabulous place for children. They get to touch everything and have a real hands on experience; get in the beds, dress in costume, sit at tables, open drawers, play billiards on the huge table. The rooms are furnished in different eras and...More

Probably the only place where you are encouraged to dit on furniture, beds, pick up items etc- totally unique experience, especially for our children who are frustrated by all the no touching in other houses! Lovely visit.

The attraction of Avebury is the stone circle so the manor is an afterthought. There's no way around this. However, the presentation of this house with rooms themed through the property's life since Tudor times is excellently done by the National Trust following a project...More

Courtesy of some generous BBC funding, parts of the Manor have been restored according to five very different periods in time from Tudor to early 20th century. Together with the kitchen garden, these rooms are very entertaining and educational walk back in time.

We loved this place. My kids got to put on costumes, sit in chairs, try out the beds, and run around the gardens. I highly recommend it. Rooms are dressed for different time periods and the guides are very knowledgeable.
