Easter holidays at Avebury

Mother and children

Why not spend some time at Avebury these Easter holidays?

You can take part in a Spring Garden Trail in Avebury Manor between 3-15 April, where children can discover about different spring animals and complete the trail to win a nature themed prize.

On Tuesdays and Fridays during the holiday there's an opportunity to join in with 'beastly activities' where children can hunt for bugs, create wild art or make a bird feeder.

You can also explore Avebury Manor where each room is decorated in the style of a different historical period.

In the Alexander Keiller Museum you can find out all about prehistoric Avebury and where you'll also find the 'Breaking Ground' exhibition which explains the important role women played in the 20th century archaeological discoveries made here.

(Some of these activities are weather dependant.)

Some useful information for your visit to Avebury:

Car parking:  The main National Trust car park is open; cost is £7 (£4 after 3pm). 

The stone circle: You can visit all four sectors of the stone circle and walk among the stones. However, to protect the underlying archaeology, some parts of the henge, including the banks, and West Kennet Avenue will be unavailable.

Eating and drinking: Our usual cafe is being refurbished at the moment (somewhat sooner than we intended due to water damage) so we've set up a pop-up cafe behind the Barn Gallery which is serving a range of light refreshments (soup, sandwiches, pasties, sausage rolls, cheese scones, cakes, cream teas and hot and cold drinks). In addition to this you can also find panini, jacket potatoes and more in the Coach House Cafe on the High Street, or light lunches and delicious cream teas in the Avebury Manor Tea-room.

We hope you enjoy your visit.
