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.

the 3000 year old stones are not in a quiet reserve. They are scattered accross some fields, most of which are right near the road. I would strongly urge you to go off the beaten track. A 1 mile walk through gorgeous meadows lead you...More

A fascinating bit of (very) ancient history (older than Stonehenge). Well worth seeing the museum first so that the stones themselves can be better understood. Plenty of space for children to run around safely.

Visited here for the day recently. We did a long walk that took in the henge, the ridgeway, various long barrows, West Kennet & Silbury Hill - a very enjoyable & interesting 3 hours. The village of Avebury is worth a wander around as well...More

We loved this place! You could walk among the stones, even touch them, and just feel the energy. It’s a fairly large area with a little town that has a pub, a couple shops, and a beautiful old church.

Amazing for the stone circle and all the history that implies quaint village amongst the stones very well worth a visit Disappointing museum, could be so much more needs a bit more thought on how it is presenting itself more vibrancy needed

The stones are enormous and hold a lot of energy. They are very still. I stayed for a long time in the shadow of the stones settling into the calm constant energy of the place. For those interested in prehistory the entire site is a...More

I enjoy Avebury more than Stonehenge because it is not quite as compact and regular. The villages is embedded in the middle of the stones. The costs could mount up if you pay for parking and the museums but it is worth doing. If you...More

The stone circle running through the town is quite unique and pretty interesting to see. Unfortunately some areas weren't accessible when we visited due to the weather, but it was still a worthwhile stop and a lovely bit of history to explore. The village itself...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!
