Stonehenge and Avebury walking challenge

An opportunity to walk in the footsteps of our ancestors in this iconic landscape, rich in archaeology, wildlife and plants. You can enjoy these wide open spaces by challenging yourself to complete all eight walks - once done you'll have walked 50km.

  • Booking not needed

The walking challenge pack includes a map holder, a set of eight self-guided walks - four in the Stonehenge landscape and four in the Avebury landscape, information about the walks and a free cup of tea at Avebury. Each walk describes the archaeology and wildlife as you go. So why not embrace health, feed your curiosity and challenge yourself.
