Brush up on your history of prehistoric Britain, get your camera ready and get away for a few days or the weekend by visiting English Heritage property, Avebury Stones in South West Wiltshire.
The most famous of these prehistoric sites is Stonehenge but Avebury henge is often overlooked and overshadowed by its close relative. Avebury is a Neolithic monument containing three stone circles and it contains the largest stone circle in Europe. It is both a tourist attraction as well as a place of religious importance to contemporary pagans.
Whether you want to visit out of season or on the highlight of the Solstice (June) or Equinox (December) you will take home some wonderful memories.
