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.

I would like to have spent more time here but I forgot when I planned it that it would be half term. Excellent car parking but I should have worn my walking boots for the grassed areas and paths.

Cold and rainy day - the converted barn museum was a bit draughty but very interesting for someone like me who wants to read all the boards! Arrived too late to view the manor as last tickets at 3.05 this time of year. You can get right up to the stones here, unlike Stonehenge.

Great prehistoric site which is free to visit (although there is a parking charge - currently £4) and is fully accessible allowing you to get up close and friendly with the stones. There is one large outer circle that runs through 3 or 4 different fields with a couple of smaller circles within. Much of the village of Avebury is... More

Visited today and we were lucky to be able to join a tour. Michael Robinson gave us a very informative walk amongst these amazing stones. The weather was kind to us and we learnt lots of fascinating facts about the stones and their archeological importance.

I haven't tried to visit Stone Henge, but the good thing about this place is you can get up close and actually touch them! Great place!

Need hot soup in winter ... too warm you up after walking round Avebury Stone Circle, on a chilly winters day? Then the National Trust tearoom is a must and if they have there homebaked sausage rolls have one too they are super! Mr Robin may stop by.

Avebury stone circle is huge. We didn't get to see it all because of time constraints but it's amazing. We went in the summer and it was quite packed with people sunbathing around the stones so be mindful of this if you are looking for a peaceful experience.

Avebury henge and stone circles, built during the Neolithic period, is the largest & one of the oldest (2500 to 2200 BC) stone circles in the world. Today, more than 30 stones are in place & pillars mark where missing stones would have been. We took the guided walk (National Trust – £3) and learned a great deal. It is... More

Fascinating few hours spent in Avebury, parking in the national trust car park very convenient for access. Remarkable to see the stones and you can spend some time exploring plus the artworks. Great visitor centre in the village would highly recommend.
