Discover Durrington Walls

Have you ever wondered where the builders of Stonehenge lived? Our National Trust landscape guides will take you on a 2.5 - 3 mile walk to explore the Durrington Walls and discover 6,000 years of hidden history.

  • Booking essential

Recent research, through geophysical surveys and excavations, is unraveling the story of this enigmatic place and we now know much more than we did ten years ago. Though peaceful today, Durrington Walls was once alive with the sounds and smells of a bustling community of hundreds, if not thousands, of people, living their lives, holding festivals and acting as the workforce for the building of Stonehenge. Bookings for this event are now open.
