Stop At: Avebury Stone Circle, Herepath Marlborough, Avebury SN8 1RF England

You will be collected from your preferred pick-up point in Bath and will be driven to the small village of Avebury in a private car. Avebury is home to the world's largest stone circle which dates back to approx. 2600BC. With your guide you will explore the remains of this ancient stone circle and your guide will explain about its history and the latest discoveries.
