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.

To walk among stones and ditches built between 4,000 and 5,000 years ago is quite simply mind boggling. To move some of the larger rocks into place today with modern lifting equipment would be difficult, but this was done with manpower and rudimentary tools alone....More

A very interesting place to visit, the stone circle surrounds the village. A pleasant walk around the stones. The stones are free but the hall costs. Car park is £7 which seems a bit excessive when you're only planning to be there a couple of...More

This is a small site and has sheep grazing on it from time to time. There are lots of sheep droppings. If weather is bad it's best to wear wellies or outdoor walking shoes as there is a walk across from the site which has...More

It was so easy to view the stones, walk around, touch them and learn all about them. Once upon a time you could do that at Stonehenge so I hope the Avebury ones never go the way they did so you can’t get up close....More

Two years since my last visit... the parking situation is unchanged; the machine still does not take notes or cards but the NT office issued a ticket and I did not need £7 in coins. No sheep or sheep poop but a coachload of German...More

This stone circle is amazing. Thrilled that a family member told us to visit. Lots of great opportunities to understand the area.

The stone circle is a must visit. DO try to get on a guided walk on the circle because the guides are incredible and you get the whole story which is absorbing!

Take your time to walk around and enjoy the majestic stones and the village. Avoid tourists as best you can. We got lucky and at one stage had one avenue to ourselves and the spiritual tingle was wonderful. We didn't have enough time, but made...More

In many ways more interesting and impressive than Stonehenge - but far fewer tourists. - his stone circle is bigger and is clearly connected to other nearby ancient sites such as the mysterious Silbury Hill, Windmill Hill and the West Kennet long-barrow. In addition there...More

There aren’t any guided tours at Avebury (to my knowledge) provided by the National Trust however, you can pick up a free map at the car park and/or print the self guided tour from the internet. Have a look around the... More
