Easy to get to via Parking layby nearby (700 metres from the Silbury Hill car park). Although a kissing style gate and a path up a small incline in a open field may prevent large prams or wheelchairs from gaining access. I was lucky to...More
This was part of my girlfriend and my historical day that started with Stonehenge, the Avebury stones and Silbury Hill.
These placese are magical and mysterious.
Good shoes needed, take a torch, fortunately we keep one in our car.
The most atmospheric of all the Neolithic sites in Wiltshire. It is often overlooked by visitors who head straight to the nearby Avebury and miss this archaeological wonder. A bit of a trek to get to but well worth a walk. Often you can find...More
I spent the first nice day of the year exploring the area surrounding Avebury- Silbury hill, the Avenue, the Sanctuary and Windmill hill. I'd say this is one of the more child friendly ones, with tombs to explore, great views. Plenty to see and do...More

Sit outside (or on top) and look at the rise and...More

Stunning piece of history, so well preserved. The walk to it is a small incline but easy. Shame someone has removed all the wishes from the oak cloutie tree- it was brimming with them last time I visited. Also a great view of Silbury Hill....More
Somewhat amazed to stumble across this in open countryside, very little fanfare considering how old it is, but how lovely to have it to ourselves on a perfect autumn day! With spectacular views across the Wiltshire countryside, particularly those of Silbury Hill, it's a must-see...More
