Avebury (Visitor Attraction)

Discover the land before time at Avebury Probably one of England's best known tourist attractions (and a World Heritage Site), Avebury is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles in Wiltshire. The site has much to thank archaeologist Alexander Keiller, known as the marmalade millionaire thanks to his breakfast creation, who opened a museum here to display much of the findings of the site in 1938 in the old stable building of Avebury manor where he lived. A wonderful tranquil and mysterious spot, visitors have the bonus of actually being able to walk right up to the stones to inspect them and ask themselves why our predecessors decided to erect these giant monuments. On a fine spring or summer day, stand and listen to the trees rustling in the breeze and enjoy the solitude. The ´Story of the Stones´ can be found in the Barn Gallery.
