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."

  • 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!
  • Interactive museum. The house seems alive. You can lie on the bed. Sit on the chairs. As if the house has always someone who lives there.
  • Great day out combined with the history of Avebury history of the stones.For young and old alike.
  • 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!
  • A fantastic rustic memory still standing strong today
