I guess that the answer is that we will never really know why it was built. A bit sad really when you consider the excavations that have happend on site, but maybe we can just look on in awe and wonder at the time and...More

You cant miss this massive man made mound, its 30meters high, although your not allowed to actually walk up it , you can walk around its base, rather impressive as it was constructed 3650BC

Stopped in the car park for coffee and a sandwich, while there we had a read of the information boards and took a photo of the Hill. Nice views across the Wiltshire countryside.

Incredible to think that this is actually man made. What on earth were they doing? We loved the view of this from the walk up to west Kennet Long Barrow, which is literally just across the road. A great day out.

If you are interested in ancient sites this well worth seeing. The mound is over 4000 years old. There is a Silbury Hill viewing car park on the A4 or you can park in the National Trust car park in Avebury, visiting the stones as...More

We used a private guide Keith Britton who is not just a great guide but an excellent photographer. We got loads of family pics free. If it makes sense for you, you could hire him and his car for the trip. Else there are... More
