This ancient monument has been out of bounds to the public for some time, to avoid damage. It seems strange that such a substantial structure needs protection, but it has no real soil cover and is very vulnerable to erosion. The Hill can be seen from many places around the area (not including the Avebury stone circle, but there is... More

Lovely walk to see Silbury Hill. My 5 and 8 year old sons liked the walk ( not too long) and were fascinated by the Hill.

The sheer size of the undertaking in building this overwhelmingly massive mound is hard to comprehend. We approached over Waden Hill, having left Avebury via the West Kennet Avenue, which means you look down on the hill and get a really good impression of its context. Two gripes. First, the selfish people climbing the hill and risking damaging it for... More

While everyone rushes to Stonehenge there are other, free prehistoric mysteries in this area. Silbury Hill is an artificial chalk mound near Avebury which you can easily walk to from the Avebury National Trust carpark. It is too fragile to get very close but the walk is well worth it, though muddy, so take your wellies.

Stands just beside a road so very easy to view from a viewing point without having to take the walk from the expensive car park.Therefore makes it accessable to all.Its amazing to think it is so old .Wonderful countryside all around.

This can be viewed only, you cannot walk up it. But it is strange and lovely. English Heritage signs explain it's creation and archaeology.

It is only when you get to the hill that you really appreciate its size. Then, attempting to figure out how people with nothing in the way of machinery and little in the way of tools, even such as a shovel, could have built this is mind-boggling. A fantastical place.

The importance of the site is obvious, and I suspect it doesn't attract many impromptu visitors so I'll stick with the boring stuff! Location: off a busy road, but with a useful small car park. You can park and walk to Avebury or up the hill to West Kennet, or there is a circular to do the three (and more... More

Glad we stopped to see, but cant approach very close as erosion of feet will damage site, so very much i a view from a distance, but close by to other historical sites from Ancient Britain, Avesbury, Windmill Hill and Long Barrows.
