Close Attractions - Eastbrook Cottage B&B
Avebury and Stonehenge
Avebury is the focus of an amazing cluster of ancient monuments including West Kennet Long Barrow, one of Britain’s largest Stone Age burial sites, and Silbury Hill. The stone circle at Avebury, erected about 4,500 years ago, forms a huge ring a quarter of a mile across and encloses part of the village. You can also visit the Alexander Keiller Museum and Avebury Manor and Gardens. Stonehenge, monolithic and mysterious, is part of the same World Heritage site as Avebury and is the most sophisticated stone circle in the world. Not to be missed!
