Avebury is a lovely attraction where you can get up close to the rocks and feel the energy coming from them. Within walking distance is a great restaurant with delicious food and drinks! My husband and I chose to come here instead of the Stonehenge...More

Mystical, magical stones. We loved the atmosphere around this area. Very nice shop for purchasing crystals, incense...Pub grub looked good, though we missed the lunch time period. We will return for a longer visit.
