stone circle

Avebury village is set within a large prehistoric stone circle, older than Stonehenge. Situated well on the tourist trail, it gets busy in summer and is best visited early morning or late afternoon in summer.

West Kennet long barrow is not usually as busy as the nearby and very impressive Avebury stone circle, a signposted grassy dirt footpath leads across a field and up a small hill to the barrow.
