This mysterious stone circle is thought to have been constructed in Neolithic times between 2500 to 2000 BC by The Beaker people, who might have played a major role in the formation of another eerie ancient site at Stonehenge.

Avesbury itself is a quaint little town which is worth a visit. It's definitely worthwhile taking a walk round the stones. Kids thoroughly enjoyed being able to get up close to them unlike Stonehenge.

What a delightful stop on our way back to London. If we had known how much was in the area we surely would have allowed more time. The energy of the place was engaging, and the scope of the site was mesmerizing.

We came here for a long walk and to see the Avebury stones and it was a really cold but sunny wintry day and was muddy but that didn't stop us enjoying our walk! The views were great and we explored all the stones and then had lunch in the little cafe and explored the shop next door. A great... More

Wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site. While there are many information placards, make sure to get on the guided tour, which lasts an hour and is extremely informative and was only two pound fifty a person. The whole site is extremely intimate. The history is dynamic - I can't rave enough about this hamlet/Neolithic mound.

Have been here many a time. This time it was part of a 9 mile circular walk taking in The Sanctuary, West Kennet Long Barrow, The Museums, Church etc. I never get tired of walking around the stones. They seem to exude an energy. You can make this visit as easy or energetic as you like as not all of... More

We love coming to Avebury for a walk. We are national trust members, so the parking charges, museums and house are included in the membership. We love to walk along the ancient site and educate the children in its history.

Yes, the car park is pricey. But being a National Trust member it cost nothing. Walking around the stones is amazing. To be able to touch them, walk among them is great. There is a museum to visit, but this was closed when we were there, but didn't miss it. Just go and walk the circle and Way Kennett Avenue,... More

Really good day out with the kids. Helped that the weather was fantastic but the stones themselves are awsome and the kids enjoyed the walk. Apart from the car parking (£4 for non National Trust members) it was all free.

For the £4 car parking fee, this is a great experience. The stone circle is most impressive and easy to walk round. The information provided is clear and interesting and because you can actually touch the stones, you get a much greater sense of history than say Stonehenge offers. The facilities offered are adequate too.
