This mysterious stone circle is thought to have been constructed in Neolithic times between 2500 to 2000 BC by The Beaker people, who might have played a major role in the formation of another eerie ancient site at Stonehenge.

Great place for a good walk (takes about an hour to do the full circle) - the nice thing is you can actually touch the stones which makes the experience so much more real than at Stonehenge.

Love these stones. More atmosphere than a lot of others that are highly regarded. You might find the wishing tree.

We parked up free and walked round the stones. It's a good walk and has nice views. We were stopping during a long journey so didn't hang around but plenty of places for a picnic and there's facilities there if you want them.

We went without any pre planning or a map. But you can get them off the internet. Just the atmosphere is wonderful. We went on one of the guided tours which was excellent. As someone has said the site is really quite small... More

The Stagecoach 49 to Devizes runs hourly from the Bus Station a few hundred yards from the Rail Station. It stops outside the Red Lion Pub in Avebury. Why not use Google Maps to plan the journey and perhaps visit... More

Check Anderson Tours for a good guided tour. I got the combo with Avebury and Stonehenge at a cheap price point. The guide was very knowledgeable too!
