Amesbury offers many interesting walks both in the Stonehenge Landscape and close to the River Avon. Guides to these walks and information on other activities in and around the town can be found in the Community & Visitor Centre. Stonehenge is of course the closest attraction to Amesbury and the 2 mile walk across the historic landscape is both invigorating and interesting. Just to the north is Woodhenge – a Neolithic site which was first recognised through aerial photographs taken in 1925 is an equally interesting site to visit. Closer to the town is Lords Walk which gives you a combined unique view of the River Avon as well as a walk down the old Lime Tree way leading to the Abbey. Visit the Church where is housed a clock that is believed to have been built in the 15th Century for the Benedictine Abbey. Originally, it had neither hands nor a dial - its sole purpose was to herald the times of worship by announcing the hour and see the story of Queen Eleanor of Provence, who died and was buried here in 1291.
