Walk and picnic amongst the prehistoric landscape at Avebury

Marlborough, Wiltshire

Avebury's stone circle makes a memorable picnic stop.


Avebury - the largest stone circle in the world - is a magical place, with a history dating back 4500 years.

The stones form a huge ring a quarter of a mile across enclosing part of the village, and whatever the time of day, you are free to wander among the inner and outer circles or along the "avenue" of stones that originally led to the Sanctuary.

The walled gardens at Avebury Manor make a delightful place for a stroll, and as the sun goes down you can return to the shelter of the stones to enjoy a delicious outdoor meal.
