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

A really lovely place to visit. The first National Trust property I’ve visited that is ‘hands on’. Touching things is actively encouraged. My two children thought it was brilliant to be able to sleep in a Tudor bed, be a cook, take photos with an...More
