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.

Lovely walk, long but nice and easy, badly signposted (as in no signposts at all once you’re out in the wilderness). Car park way too expensive if you’re not a national trust member, £7 all day with no shorter time limits available. Great bit of...More

The Avebury Stone Circle engages one from the road. But it is far better to actually approach a stone. See it up close, in its rough magnificence and wonder how it was moved and why it was placed here with so many others in this...More

We love archeology and ruins, so Avebury was high on the list. We went with Anderson Tours and Katia who was excellent.

If these ancient sites give you the shivers, don't miss Avebury. The giant circle of rough stones is older than Stonehenge, surrounded by the earthwork (path on top) and ditch with two roads bisecting at 6/12 and 3/9 respectively and a tiny village, church, shops...More

Interesting stones, certainly receommended over Stonehenge as you can get close to the stones and it is a larger circle, albeit without the 'top' stones that make Stonehenge so stunning. Not overly exciting, but if it's the sort of thing that floats your boat, you'll...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!
