About
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.

This Neolithic stone circle surrounding Avebury Village is a must to visit. The henge or earthwork is huge and is the largest in the world. Many stones are still standing and unlike Stonehenge, you can get up close to every one. Why Neolithic man built...More

Avebury Stone Circle has incredible ancient monuments that are a sight to behold. While Stonehenge gets most of the attention, this area should not be missed as it is much more accessible and gives a broad view of what might have been. Definitely worth the...More

The parking here is a complete rip off. You can only pay for a full day's parking which would be OK if there was a day's worth of attractions to see. The stones are worth seeing as is the small village.

Very nice place to visit. Tip: You'll save a couple of dollars parking at the Red Lion restaurant instead of the main parking area for the stone circle. If you eat at the restaurant you get your parking fee back.

Avebury Stone Circle is a World Heritage Site with fascinating Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments. There is a huge earthen mound, composed of dirt excavated from an inner deep ditch. Within the earthen mound are stone circles, stone avenues, and ancient tombs (and these "stones"...More

What can I say, it’s just a series of massive boulders in circles across a few sites. Access is awful we had a wheelchair user with us who could not get anywhere near the stones. Pathways are slippy so please wear good walking boots/shoes. The...More

I agree with the previous contributors re access to the stones themselves but the two museums are well worth visiting.
