It is the Avebury's Stone Circle, which makes the town of Avebury a trawlers mecca. Surrounded by the stones, the little hamlet of Avebury offers food, a couple of museums and a few shopping opportunities for the traveler.

Having been established during the time of the Saxon's, the village of Avebury has little historic relationship to the standing stones surrounding it. During the Middle Ages, a time when the church had little tolerance for paganism, the town's people did attempt to bury the stones. A practice that ended when one of the workers was killed in the moving of one of the stones. A few stones were also incorporated in to the village's construction.
Avebury is located a short drive north of Stonehenge. There is a car park on the A4361, providing easy access to the town and the stones. The village parking is only available to visitor's in the late evening.
