Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site is a special place well worth taking some time to explore.

Marvel at the sarsen megaliths at Stonehenge and wonder how the Neolithic communities moved them over great distances and constructed the most sophisticate stone circle in the world.

At Avebury, walk the ramparts of the giant henge, the largest in Europe, and get close to the giant stones that make up the Avebury stone circle.

Explore the rich archaeological collection in the Alexander Keiller Museum and make time to visit the nationally important collections at Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum in Devizes.

Explore the landscape using the many rights of way and areas of open access to discover fascinating monuments such as the Cursus, Silbury Hill, West Kennett Long Barrow and the hundreds of bronze age round barrows that make up this ceremonial and funerary landscape.
