A half day archaeology tour around the Avebury landscape

This half day tour takes in as many as you would like of the numerous sites in the northern half of the World Heritage Site. It inevitably involves some time in the henge and stone circles of Avebury itself but we also visit Silbury Hill, West Kennet Long Barrow and the West Kennet Avenue. We can add The Sanctuary, Overton Hill and Lockeridge Dene by car and Windmill Hill on foot although if the track is in decent condition I can get us pretty close  by car. The Alexander Keiller Museum in Avebury is also very much worth a visit and can be included in a half day tour as can The Circles CafĂ©.
