  • Where else in the South of England can you walk inside a prehistoric tomb? Memorable, good views, and easy to combine with a walk by Silbury Hill and around Avebury Stone Circle  more »
  • Get your walking boots on. You have about a 1/2 mile walk up hill and through a muddy field. But when you get there wow, peaceful and tranquil, beautiful place to arrive at. You can walk all around it...  more »

  • Fantastic neolithic Long Barrow that you can go inside. A couple of sky lights have been installed so you might be okay on a sunny day, but I'd take a torch so you can get the most out of going inside. Be warned that there is only parking for about 7 or 8 cars at the bottom of the hill. Why not park at Avebury and walk here along The Avenue?
  • West Kennet Long Barrow is well worth visiting, and is one of the most interesting landmarks in the area. Information boards at the site were useful, and the Barrow itself was one of the most impressive in the country. Parking is available at the roadside and it is a short walk up to the Barrow from there.
  • Great place to visit. However you will need to be mobile, reasonably fit and prepared to walk there to enjoy.
  • Loved it. The fact that you can go inside it is such a great part of the experience.
  • A fantasticly evocative monument that I recomend for anyone to visit.
