What's on this spring at Avebury

Celebrating Spring

Why not join us for some half-term fun? Between Saturday 26 May and Sunday 3 June, 11am - 4pm we have plenty of things to keep your little adventurers occupied.

Spring activities and 50 things

Join us in Avebury Manor garden to take part in a birds, bees, butterflies and blooms themed activity. From making a bee hotel to hunting for bugs there will be something to do every day. Most have a small charge to cover the cost of materials and all activities are weather dependent. Find out more about ’50 things’ at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/50-things-to-do.

Exploring Avebury Manor

Why not bring your little adventurers along to explore Avebury Manor?  Each room is decorated in a different time period and here they can dress up like a Georgian or try on some Tudor costumes.  Avebury Manor is a hands on experience, so, unlike other National Trust properties, you are allowed to touch the artefacts and sit on the chairs, giving children the opportunity to immerse themselves in times past.

Burn off some energy

Why not let the children burn off some energy in the henge and stone circles? This is the perfect place to run free, while at the same time taking in the wonder of the ancient standing stones.  Afterwards why not treat yourself to something delicious from Circles Pop-up Cafe in the Old Farmyard?
