World-famous stone circle and on-site museum at the heart of a prehistoric landscape
At Avebury, the world's largest prehistoric stone circle partially encompasses a pretty village. Millionaire archaeologist Alexander Keiller excavated here in the 1930s, and there is a museum bearing his name.
Arranged in two parts, the Alexander Keiller Museum is divided into the Stables, displaying archaeological treasures from across the World Heritage Site, and the Barn, a 17th-century threshing barn housing interactive displays and children's activities that reveal the story of this ancient landscape.
Avebury Manor, on the edge of the village, was transformed in a partnership between the National Trust and the BBC, creating a hands-on experience that celebrates and reflects the lives of the people who once lived here.
A classic English manor house reborn
Avebury Manor has been home to many families since it was built in the 1550s. In 2011 a team of historians, designers, craftsmen and volunteers transformed it for a major BBC TV project.
The rooms are decorated to reflect key moments in its history, linked to the real stories of the house and its occupants.
