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.

Like most people, we visited Stonehenge, then Woodhenge and then Avebury. It's different but similar. It's a larger circle and is in a different setting. We also visited the West Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill prior to Avebury and the whole lot make for...More

A massive site with lots to contemplate and treasures to discover. We got a relatively inexpensive guide book in the shop and set out. Even though it was a dry day, it didn't seem like there were very many people largely because the site is...More

Inevitably you will make comparisons with Stonehenge, and while the famous cousin has bigger stones, Avebury is far more intricate and covers a much broader area. Wander about in different directions (mindful of the sheep droppings), touch the stones, and try to imagine why they...More

The Avebury Stones are laid out across the hills around Avebury. It's great you can just walk around them and see other unusual sites such as Silsbury hill, another man made structure. The purpose of which is still undetermined.

Avebury Stone Circle is an interesting place, much bigger than Stonehenge, but in my opinion, far less interesting. Also, because it is set in the middle of a little village, at least for the most part, you don't get the dramatic impact you do at...More

Travelled there beginning of June in a very hot day. I liked the place but not as much as Stonehenge. The story is unknown of course and even in these days there are still secrets around/below the stones. But of course the story which we...More

Having visited Stonehenge only 2 days prior to visiting Avebury, we were pleasantly surprised by what we discovered. Stonehenge was great, but with it comes dozens of tour buses, thousands of people, line-ups for the shuttle, the viewing and the food in the restaurant, and...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

Check Anderson Tours for a good guided tour. I got the combo with Avebury and Stonehenge at a cheap price point. The guide was very knowledgeable too!
