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."

  • Beautiful house. The volunteers were very friendly and helpful. You can touch most of the things in the house and dress up which was great for our family day out, especially for my cousin who likes to touch everything she sees! Also lovely gardens, my mum really enjoyed them.
  • First visit to the restored Manor House, very well done, different eras around the house. Very hands on with costumes to try on, and furniture you can sit down on. Definitely will come back.
  • Very interactive and interesting. Describes the residents over 400 years
  • Absolutely delightful place to visit. All the rooms are decorated and furnished in a different style, from Tudor, to 1939 on the eve of WW2. Everything (with only one or two exceptions) can be touched and handled. You can even play billiards or get into the reproduction Queen Anne bed. There are costumes, wigs or hats to try on in every room. Incredible fun and lots of learning opportunities for children and adults!
  • Wonderful place to visit. The staff are really friendly and ready to answer any and all questions
