Well worth a walk out to Silbury Hill if you're visiting Avebury, though there is a car park if you prefer to drive out. It's just a big, man-made hill, but it's truly an impressive endeavor. This is part of the ancient sites in the area that are worth visiting. You can't climb up the hill, though you can see... More

This is a big, ancient artificial hill created thousands of years ago. One wonders why. But that doesn't make it less interesting (perhaps adding to the interest). There is close parking nearby, but I wouldn't stay there long.

When you realise that the builders of this were neolithic and probably using deer antlers and shoulder bones as tools you can only be in awe of what they managed. Well work a visit. Best views of it are as you walk up the opposite side of the road to West Kennet Long Barrow.

Silbury Hill, we are told is the largest man made mound anywhere in the world and it dates back to about 2400BC. And there it sits right by the A4 just a few miles west of Marlborough. Parking space is adequate and has an information board. Although the hill is impressive from wherever one views it we found that looking... More

Its a man made hill that has been there a very long time. Whilst you can see paths to the top, your are not encouraged to enter the site and can view it from a vantage point, and car park.

As impressive as this chalk mount is, it's a big shame you can't get close to it. I fully understand that as a prehistoric site it must be preserved for future generations and it shouldn't be climbed but it would non the less be nice to be able to get to the foot of it and walk around it. As... More

The history behind Silbury hill is described on a board at the base near the car park. This is amazing although no one really know s why it was built. You cannot actually walk up the hill as it is protected and rightly so. You can however walk around the base, Really there is not much more to see than... More

You can't hike up it, you can really only look at it a bit, and even that gets old after a bit. But it is a piece of amazing history preserved with all it's questions of whys and hows and whos? Just stare at it a bit and wonder about that.
