Reasons to visit

I had never heard of Avebury until our daughter visited. It is one of our grandson's favorite places. The stones are in a much larger circle which is all the way around the village of Avebury. They are not all there, and missing ones are indicated with these cement markers. I think they are doing some excavation work there now but there was no evidence of it in 2002

Bob and our daughter and grandson walked around to the closest stones, and I walked up through town. I went into one of the souvenier shops along the street,.

Avebury is particularly busy at the summer solstice. If you go then, it might be a good idea to use the regular bus services that operate to Avebury from Swindon, Marlborough and Salisbury.

You can get a pamphlet with six walks around Avebury from the National Trust.

After this we went to our daughter's house in Cheltenham
