  • I visited this many years ago when we were allowed to walk on it. I fully appreciate why we can't now but no concession has been given to visitors. The nearest car park is fenced of from the site so y...  more »
  • Silburry Hill belongs at all in this beautiful landscape. The mountain, however, is not to visit because he is not stable. You can not on and not under. It is still a question mark why built this because there are no bodies or skeletons in found. It is the largest man-made Hill in the world.

  • We parked, we took the umbrella, we take a couple of shots and ready. You can not climb to prevent erosion.

  • Nothing to do here but look at a hill. However there's so much more to it. The tallest man made Neolithic mound in Europe just oozes mystique. You can feel the history of nearly 6000 years of existence. The purpose of the hill is still unknown. There's parking on the A4 next to the hill (free) and a short path to a viewing spot. Access to the hill itself is no longer allowed. Go and see it and feel the connection to the past.
  • Anyone with the slightest of interest in Prehistory has. to visit this site and the surrounding landscape
  • Beautiful place to stop and learn some history don't forget the long Barrow over the road
  • It's a man made hill which you are not allowed to walk on and excavations have failed to find out what it was built for.! Avebury village and stone circle as well as west Kennett long barrow are nearby so is interesting to visit as part of a visit to the area especially if you enjoy walking.
  • Fashinating and misterious neolitic monument.
