Avebury is a very special place, a World Heritage Site and it's almost on our doorstep,
just 8 miles away. It is on The White Horse Trail and we have a 12 mile Avebury loop
walk for those guests wanting to walk every bit of the Trail.
There are circular walks of various lengths around Avebury, but all have in common
a visit to the stone circle where you can wander freely and, unlike Stonehenge, get
up close to the stones. You can visit at any time, no charge - but please note that
the National Trust car park closes at 4.30pm in winter, 6.30pm in summer. The very
interesting Alexander Keiller Museum is open every day and Avebury Manor and Garden
is open several days a week during the main season. Avebury Manor was the subject
of a recent BBC TV programme The Manor Reborn.
For something a bit special, how about a personalised guided tour of Avebury and
its environs? Whether you're interested in the origins of the stone circle, long
barrows or hill forts, crop circles or the mystery of Silbury Hill, I can put you
in touch with experts who can give you a far deeper insight into this historic landscape
than you will get from an average guidebook. Ask for more details.
The photos below are a mixture of pictures taken in Avebury itself, its environs
and on the Avebury Loop walk.
