Part of the Stonehenge & Avebury World Heritage Site

Containing the largest and one of the most important megalithic stone circles in Europe, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Avebury is a very special place. Constructed around 2600 BC archaeologists believe that it was part of a larger prehistoric landscape and was most likely used for some form of ritual or ceremony. Today, Avebury is managed by the National Trust but access to the stone circle is free and there are fascinating walks of varying lengths in the area which is jam-packed full of Neolithic archaeology.
