A day out with a difference

Avebury Manor was recently the subject of a unique collaboration with the BBC. The lives and stories of the house's many owners were brought to life by the use of interior design, including the creation of many new pieces.

Entry to the house is by timed ticket available on the day of your visit, or in advance online.

Come and play

Relax with a book in the armchairs, have a game or two in the Billiards Room, or even try out the four-poster beds for size.

This groundbreaking project now means that many rooms have been furnished and the house has become a vibrant place where you can enjoy a journey through time.

A garden of hidden delights

The scent of lavender surrounds the path to Avebury Manor in the summer

An atmospheric place to wander, the Manor garden features topiary and tranquility. Bees buzz in walled gardens lined with cat mint and a seasonal dahlia display makes a riot of colour in late summer.

Kitchen garden: one more transformation

Kitchen garden

Part of the BBC project, our kitchen garden was transformed from an overgrown plot, and now supplies the Circles Cafe with fresh fruit and vegetables and flowers.
