Avebury

Avebury Village - Anderson Tours - with Stonehenge from London
Avebury Village next to Avebury Stone Circle

Avebury is part of the World Heritage Site that includes Stonehenge; in the area of Wiltshire dotted with many barrows, standing stones and processional routes.

While Stonehenge is an iconic world famous ancient monument, nearby Avebury just 20 miles north, despite being the largest henge in the world, is relatively unknown. Avebury has lots of fascinating history for you to uncover, and includes 2 other stone circles inside the larger one.

Your guide will give you a short walking tour to orientate yourself, after which you will have free time to explore this picturesque and historic area. Anderson recommends lunch at the infamous, haunted Red Lion Pub (lunch is not included in the cost of the tour).

Stonehenge

Stonehenge Anderson Tours
Explore the mysterious Stonehenge

This ancient Neolithic site, over 5,000 years' old offers a fascinating glimpse into our ancestors' past. The ring of stones still poses many archaeological and historical questions for academics and visitors alike.

A phenomenal feat of engineering, each stone weighing many tonnes, it is fascinating to admire the spirit of cooperation needed to build something at such an early time in history, with such primitive tools.

You will have around 2 hours to explore this mysterious & awe-inspiring monument at your own pace.
