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.

Was in this area for a week and having not visited wither Stonehenge or here before they were on our list to see. As people have said this place is very different to Stonehenge. For a start you actually get to walk in, around and amongst the stones and this makes for a more more tactile experience. Couple this with... More

Just fun to walk amongst the old stones. Make sure you wear sentible shoes as can get muddy. Look out for the different birds in the hedgerows.

This is one of my favorite spots. Visited Summer 2015. In my opinion much more interesting and tactile than the now sterile Stonehenge. The village of Avebury has been woven in and around the enormous ancient stones. You can walk up to them and kiss them if you like. Stand there in awe at what the ancients built and what... More

Another find on our 6 week road trip of UK, Day we visited we just walked in with no entry fee (that was a first, and no parking fee!!) Can walk around touch and get pics with this piece of history

Good place to wander around and see a monument of similar age to Stonehenge, but you get to touch this one. Lovely little village with an excellent pub and a good cafe and a couple of small shops.

I sat in the devils seat here. Nothing happened, supposedly some women use to sit there for fertility. The laylines in the area are really neat and interesting to learn about. If you go here make sure you eat at the little red lion restaurant. its pretty good !

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
