Silbury Hill is an iconic landmark, and one of those mysterious North Wiltshire must see's. It is a shame you can no longer walk up there - you could years ago and the views were lovely. It is also well known for crop circles suddenly...More

Stopped in the car park for coffee and a sandwich, while there we had a read of the information boards and took a photo of the Hill. Nice views across the Wiltshire countryside.

Big fan of Silbury Hill. It’s a shame you can’t get closer to it due to the barbed wire fencing. Great selfie opportunities here! I have seen some people climb the hill and it looks great fun! But your not supposed to climb it but...More
