  • I suspect one's enjoyment of Avebury will depend on how well you can picture the scene 6,000 years ago, because standing stones aren't especially interesting in and of themselves. I found it all surprisingly spiritual. The car park is £7 for the day, which is rather a rip-off if you only fancy a quick look. The cafe had a small menu but was very nice and reasonably priced.
  • Such a wonderful place. It is so relaxed compared to Stonehenge without loosing any of the magical feeling there is to a site like this. Not a lot of people there and you can come any time it is light to look at the ancient rocks. So if you want to see something like Stonehenge but doesn't like the crowds this is the place to go. Absolutely loved it.
  • You can take your Stonehenge and shove it right up your big-stone-loving whatnot. Avebury is by far the more glorious site of the two. Plus, you can touch the stones here. You can hug them. You can hide under them. You can ENJOY them. You can't do that at Stonehenge. Not unless you want to get arrested. Which, I imagine, you don't.
  • Avebury is a mystical magical place. You can park at the National Trust car park outside the village. It's fairly expensive, but access to the stones is free, so it's hard to begrudge the £7 a day charge. Then it's a few minutes walk until you get to the stones, but when you do, they are breathtaking. The scale of the stones is amazing, and there is an impressive earthwork outside the main ring of stones, which you can walk around for impressive views of the stones and surrounding countryside. The unique thing about Avebury is the village nestled within the stones circle. The is even a pub! the beautiful, quintessentially English Red Lion, complete with thatched roof. A wonderful place to visit, in the true sense of the word wonderful. It really inspires wonder.
  • This is a fantastic park! The stones are large and many. There is a museum and lots of other things to walk around and see too. We had to leave before they locked the gate, but could have easily stayed another hour or more. Plan on at least a two hour stop here.
