Autumn at Avebury

Stone circle at Avebury

Crystal clear skies and sunny days, misty dawns and the smell of wood-smoke in the air, Autumn at Avebury is the perfect place to escape for a few hours of peace.

With autumn well and truly here, why not make the most of the season ...

Henge tours

You can take a guided walk around the henge and stone circles.  These run each afternoon from the Old Farmyard at a cost of £3 per adult (children free). Our expert guide will explain all about the way the henge and circles were built, how life was for people in the Neolithic and you'll hear the gory story of the Barber Surgeon Stone.  The walk takes around 45 minutes.

Apple Celebrations

This autumn we are paying homage to the humble apple, We'll be pressing apples, there will be information on how to grow and care for apple trees, and our gardeners will be on hand to answer all questions.  Why not head to the Orchard in Avebury Manor Garden and have a go at pressing apples for yourself?  Free with entry to the manor.

Avebury Manor Garden

At this time of year, the garden is a riot of colour, with the trees turning gold and orange and a wealth of late blooming flowers in the Monk's Garden - why not have a look for yourself and perhaps finish with a visit to the manor and a cream tea in the quintessentially English Avebury Manor Tea-room?
