avebury stone circle

Avebury is a henge monument (which is an ancient place surrounded by a bank and ditch) and is the world’s largest prehistoric stone circle, originally comprising of some 100 standing stones, with two inner stone circles. It was created over several hundred years in New Stone Age during the Third Millennium BC.

Avebury is a National Trust site and is open all year round though the associated Museum and coffee shop close for annual holidays. Along with Stonehenge, Avebury is a World heritage site confirming its international importance.

The Standing Stone circle and grand avenues are just part of a huge ritual landscape, with Silbury Hill, West Kennet Long Barrow and the Sanctuary all playing a part in the ancient vista.

Whether you want to commune with the spirits of those that made this amazing landscape or just marvel at the efforts of a pre-metal civilisation, Avebury is a must for tourists from near or far.
