All about Avebury; The History Press

UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND – Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites

November 1, 2016, marks 30 years since seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites were inscribed in the United Kingdom. That number has grown over the last 30 years to now include a total of 30 sites throughout the UK and British Overseas Territories. Avebury is one of the seven original sites, and author Steve Marshall is here to guide you through this Neolithic henge monument, home to the largest stone circle in Europe.

Avebury lies about 90 miles west of London, between Calne and Marlborough in the county of Wiltshire. Less than 20 miles to the south is Stonehenge.

Buses to Avebury run hourly from Swindon, which is well served by trains from London and Bristol.
