I live locally and drive through Avebury most weekdays on my way to the office but had never visited Avebury Manor itself. Having now done so, I’m pleased to say that I was not disappointed. Very interesting and well worth a visit.

There are many manor houses to visit throughout England but this one is definitely worth it given it allows you to experience what it was like to live there. Sitting at the table, lying on the bed or playing a game of billiards, all makes...More

We hadn't intended on visiting the manor while at Avebury stones but were glad we did. It's an interesting place, both it's history and the BBC National Trust project that saw it re-furnished through different centuries. You can touch, sit on, lie on and dress...More

Great historic building. Plenty to see and photograph. Wear Welles if damp visiting the stones or a change of shoes for the house.
