Key Info:
Viewing area open at any reasonable time - no access to the hill itself. 1 mile West of West Kennet on A4 (OS Map 173; ref SU 100685)

Description:
The largest man-made mound in Europe, huge and mysterious Silbury Hill is comparable in height and volume to the roughly contemporary Egyptian pyramids. Probably completed by about 2350 BC and part of the Avebury 'sacred landscape', it apparently contains no burial or shrine, and was clearly important in itself: but its purpose and significance remain enigmatic.

Opening Times:
All year at any reasonable time.

Dog Restrictions:
Dogs on leads are welcome - contact site for any restrictions. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere.
