The lesser-known tourist attraction that Brits say is much better than Stonehenge
People drive past Stonehenge and take pictures but drive to a bigger and much more impressive ancient site.
“Unlike Stonehenge, this place was free to visit. Unlike Stonehenge (unless you are a Druid or a hairy soap dodging crusty during the winter and summer solstices), you can actually touch the artefacts.
“Unlike Stonehenge, there was a pub or two and tea rooms very close by. The place is called Avebury, in the county of Wiltshire. Look it up on Google.”
Avebury henge and stone circles is an English Heritage site and are described online as “one of the greatest marvels of prehistoric Britain”.
The henge contains the largest stone circle in Britain, which also has two smaller stone circles enclosed within it.
English Heritage claim that Avebury is “part of an extraordinary set of Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial sites that seemingly formed a vast sacred landscape”.
Other people agreed that Stonehenge is far less impressive than Avebury, recommending it as the better tourist attraction.
