In the bleak midwinter ... find Christmas cheer at Avebury

‘In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone’ – the famous poem by Christina Rossetti, written in the 19th century, captures the feel of the long winter months. At Avebury, it may be cold and bleak outside, but you’ll find festive cheer inside. After an invigorating walk around the stones you could enjoy the warmth of the café, peruse the delights in the shop and enjoy the decorations at Avebury Manor (the manor is open Thurs – Sun only).
