Take time and visit this Neolithic site. You can follow the circle, and unlike Stonehenge, you can touch the stones. Avebury, located within the stone circle, boasts several shops, and a nice, thatched roof, pub, great for lunch or snack.

Everyone knows about Stonehenge but Avebury is very special in its own unique way. At Stonehenge there are thousands of tourists, parking lots and tour buses, but at Avebury you will encounter just a few visitors, giving you the opportunity to slow down and take...More

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

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.

We visited here on the spur of the moment and the stones and walk were very nice. It was a pleasant place to attend and the walk was very pleasant. The facilities were good. The only issue is that the parking was not very easy...More

We went without any pre planning or a map. But you can get them off the internet. Just the atmosphere is wonderful. We went on one of the guided tours which was excellent. As someone has said the site is really quite small... More

The Stagecoach 49 to Devizes runs hourly from the Bus Station a few hundred yards from the Rail Station. It stops outside the Red Lion Pub in Avebury. Why not use Google Maps to plan the journey and perhaps visit... More
