Avebury to Stonehenge

43 km / 27 miles

Walk between the World Heritage Sites of Avebury and Stonehenge through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.

The first section of this walk rises through open countryside to a height of around 260m before it descends to several villages and briefly follows the Kennet & Avon Canal. The path later climbs up to a track along the edge of the Salisbury Plain Training Area then drops down to the River Avon and the string of villages along its course. Towards the end of the walk the route takes in the Neolithic sites of Woodhenge and Durrington Walls.

There are a number of pubs and a couple of shops on the route should you need to stop for refreshment or supplies. This route is walkable year-round with generally good conditions underfoot. It is not technically challenging.
