Tour Overview…

Avebury Stone Circle

  • Along with West Kennet Long Barrow this extraordinary site forms a ‘sacred landscape’, whose use and purpose will lead you on a mysterious journey. Avebury Stone Circle and its surroundings have, with Stonehenge, achieved international recognition as a World Heritage Site. Built over many centuries from about 2850 BC to 2200 BC, it has a huge circular bank including part of Avebury village.

West Kennet Long Barrow

  • One of the largest, most impressive Neolithic chambered tombs in Britain. Built in around 3650 BC, some 400 years before Stonehenge, it was used for a short time as a burial chamber, nearly 50 people being buried here before the chambers were blocked. Situated on a prominent chalk ridge, near Silbury Hill, our tour guide can escort you as you discover this archaeological wonder.

Cherhill Horse

  • The figure at Cherhill was first cut in 1780 and is the third oldest of such white horses in Britain. The horse has been ‘scoured’ several times, most recently in 2002 when it was resurfaced with one hundred and sixty tonnes of new chalk. It remains to this day a very popular tourist attraction, facing north-east on a steep slope of Cherhill Down.

Silbury Hill

  • Silbury Hill is a prehistoric artificial chalk mound near Avebury and part of the World Heritage Site. It compares in height and volume to the some of the Egyptian pyramids and is thought to have been built over 100 years from 2470 BC. It is another link to what is a very mysterious tour for those interested in the ancient monuments of Britain.

Marlborough Town

  • An old english picturesque market town, Marlborough retains much of its great natural beauty and offers the discerning visitor a blend of modern attractions and facilities. This is your opportunity to browse through some unique shops and experience the towns charm and character.
