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

There is a small car park on the road that you can use. Depending on the time of year it is worth wearing either boots or trainers as the path up to it can be a bit muddy and slippy. It is well worth the...More

This prehistoric structure is clearly visible from the road, so it can be estimated how far the walk will be, once you have parked. The footpath is clearly outlined. Dogs need to be on leads as sheep can be seen nearby. The size and scale...More

Oh I do like WKLB. Even better if there's no-one else but you (and your friends as applicable) there. Connect with the land and the ancestors. Drum and feel the energies of the place. Sit outside (or on top) and look at the rise and...More

A great place to visit. Over 5500 years old and in great condition considering the age. Make sure you take a torch as you can go inside and it's dark ofcourse. Parking is minimal in 2 lay byes on the main road but we had...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
