Wander through an early 16th-century manor house and its gardens at Avebury Manor. Try out the four-poster beds, listen to old gramophones, and play billiards at this fully restored house, where furniture and decorations can be handled, rather than merely viewed. Before you explore the manor, view the short film about its restoration, which was featured on the BBC television series "The Manor Reborn."

  • Great building with an interesting history.
  • Great bulding with a fascinating history
  • A fantastic rustic memory still standing strong today
  • Oh dear! Beautiful spot, lovely surroundings, so much work has been done to put Averbury's amazing heritage on the map.. Stayed at fab The Old Forge, B & B in East Kennet, paid the £7 official parking to visit the stones (n.b there is car parking in the village, but signs there insist "no tourist parking", the henge shop must love that) enjoyed strong coffee and fluffy cakes at the visitor centre, bought books at the site shop, then one wrong step into the gardens and we were scuttled after by officious National Heritage bod, who nearly burst a vessel when i took a photo of the garden next to the main entrance without spending the £10.00 entrance fee (manor and gardens). No sense of proportion at all. Take a leaf out of West Dean Gardens in West Sussex, National Heritage Avebury, and chill out a bit. Will go back. It is a magic place, and petty people can't bring a great place down.
  • This was a really neat experience for my wife and I. I was amazed that as soon as we walked in were invited to look, touch, sit on the furniture -- even try out the beds if we like, as long as we took our shoes off! Everything looked really fantastic inside; it's what I'd expect an English manor to look like. All the volunteers were very friendly and engaging, happy to discuss anything about the room they were in. If you are a photographer, you'll have fun here, as there are so many subjects to pick from, and the lighting (albeit challenging at times) really provides drama. Bring a wide lens, as some of the rooms are small. My favorite room was the one immediately to your right as you enter. Cozy and filled with tons of period stuff. All that was missing was a glass of scotch in my hand to swirl around!
