Stonehenge and Avebury Small Group Tour from London

Mysterious Britain This tour will introduce you to some of the magnificent & mysterious prehistoric monuments that are part of the 'Stonehenge, Avebury & Associated Sites' designated UNESCO World Heritage site. This covers many famous monuments in the Wiltshire area of Britain made by Neolithic man, whose significance and uses are only partly understood. These sites are often assigned mystical or astronomical importance by pagans and modern druids & are treated as sacred sites by many. On this tour, we will visit the tiny village of Avebury with its stone circles situated just a short distance from its similar but more famous relative, Stonehenge. After a guided walking tour, you will have free time to explore the stone circles and village of Avebury, including the supposedly haunted Red Lion Pub. We will also see West Kennet Long Barrow, a large Neolithic burial tomb and over 5000 years old, and Silbury Hill, the tallest prehistoric man-made mound in Europe whose purpose is still shrouded in mystery.

What is Avebury Stone Circle?

Avebury is a small village located in Wiltshire, not far from stonehenge. It is home to the largest ancient stone circle in Britain. The village is known for being a bit of a hippie village. It has a gift shop, healing stone shop and a couple pubs and of course lots of fluffy sheep.

What Makes Avebury Stone Circle Special?

Avebury is unique because it’s both ancient and lived-in. The village within the circle gives it a different feel from Stonehenge—it’s less of a “museum piece” and more of a living landscape. Also, because it’s generally less crowded than Stonehenge, you can often explore the site at a more leisurely pace, getting up close to the stones. Whereas at Avebury you can only look at the stones from a distance, at Avebury you’re free to pet, climb and cuddle.

What are Stone circles?

Stone circles are ancient monuments consisting of standing stones arranged in a circular or sometimes elliptical shape. Most commonly found in the British Isles and Brittany in France, these structures were primarily built during the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age, roughly between 3000 BCE and 1500 BCE. The stones can vary in size from small, knee-high rocks to towering megaliths several metres tall.

The purpose of these stone circles remains a subject of debate and speculation.

How many stone circles are in the UK?

The exact number of stone circles in the UK is difficult to pin down, as new discoveries can still be made and some may have been destroyed or altered over the millennia. However, it’s generally estimated that there are over 1,000 stone circles in the British Isles, which includes the United Kingdom and Ireland.

In Scotland alone, there are estimated to be over 400 stone circles, with a high concentration in the northeastern region, particularly in Aberdeenshire. England is home to some of the most famous stone circles, including Stonehenge and Avebury in Wiltshire.


What is West Kennet Long Barrow?

The West Kennet Long Barrow is a Neolithic burial mound located near Avebury in Wiltshire, England. Built around 3650 BCE, it’s one of Britain’s largest and best-preserved barrows. The mound is about 100 metres long and contains a series of stone chambers used for communal burials. Archaeological excavations have uncovered the remains of at least 46 individuals, along with pottery and stone tools. After its initial use, the chambers were sealed with large stones. Today, the barrow is open to the public, offering a glimpse into ancient burial practices and beliefs.
