On top of that, you can walk amongst the stones and even sit in them should you like and there are great walking possibilities. You pay nothing for this pleasure either and I can only marvel that so few people find their way to this treasure.
Not only are the stones fascinating, but Avebury itself is quite a pretty village with its old church and manor house.
