Unfortunately you can't get too close to this ancient chalk and earth pyramid. The car park is about 250 yards away and you get a good view of it with an explanation board provided by English heritage.

We visited this hill having read some information beforehand about the mysterious hill with no burial beneath. It truly is huge and appears to have no significance. The owner of our holiday accommodation said that as a child she played on it but said that a hole appeared at the top rendering it unsafe for people to climb. There is no access to the hill now. We parked in the car park where there is an information board and signposted route to Avebury stone circles.

Not really well known, which is surprising as it is near the famous Stonehenge and is the tallest prehistoric manmade mound in Europe at close the 40 metres tall. Without people or a cow to give size perspective in the photograph it is difficult to appreciate the size, but it does stand out from its surroundings such as background large trees and then you appreciate the immense nature of building this 2500 years ago. There is a car park on the A4 immediately adjacent to the site for a close up view or for panoramic the A4361 Beckhampton road but there is no parking along that stretch. Viewing only, no walking on the mound obviously due to the erosion that would be caused. Close to Avebury Henge and Stone Circles 3km away.

You’re not allowed to walk up it, but quite impressive to look at/ consider the timescales involved.

Plenty of wildlife and well maintained walks around it

This was an interesting place to visit. There are some lovely walks around the Hill but also great views of Silbury Hill from many different points.
I would recommend having a look online for some information about the Hill before you go or after you get back because there are some really interesting facts and folk law involving the Hill.
Its a mysterious but interesting place to visit
