On Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September, enjoy free entry to Avebury Manor and Garden, and the Alexander Keiller Museum. Throughout Heritage Open Days, take part in free tours of the stone circle and manor attic rooms.
Visitors will be able to explore the sixteenth century manor for free as well as the 2023 pop-up exhibition 'In Stitches: Women and needlecraft at Avebury Manor.' Recent findings from a Find My Past project highlighting the importance and lives of servants and staff at Avebury Manor will also be on show with new interpretation throughout the house.
As well as enjoying the manor house, visitors will have a chance to see almost 100 striking pieces of art set in the beautiful Avebury Manor Garden as part of the annual sculpture exhibition.
Free entry to the Alexander Keiller Museum is included for those interested in the fascinating archaeology and history of Avebury World Heritage Site.
Subject to volunteer availability, there will also be free henge and attic tours from Fri 8 - Sun 17 September. The henge tour offers a wonderful insight into the history of Avebury stone circle from the Neolithic origins to 1930s archaeologists, while the attic tour invites visitors into parts of the manor not normally on show and delves beneath the floorboards to uncover some interior archaeology. Please note that the attic tours take place in Avebury Manor, and normal admission prices will still apply Sun 10-Sun 17 September.
Please get your free tickets from visitor reception in the barn and see the website for full details and opening times.
This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
