The Red Lion
The only pub in the world surrounded by an ancient stone circle.
The Red Lion Pub located in Avebury holds the distinction as being one of the most haunted pubs in the entire United Kingdom. Encircling the pub is a strange collection of ancient stones from the Neolithic period in Britain. They were first excavated by Alexander Keiller and are believed to have served religious purposes.
Inside the pub is just as fascinating as its surroundings. The Red lion is home to a 17th-century well, now fashioned into a table complete with a window to peer inside. Ghost stories and other tales are common here, where the staff is more than willing to relay a chilling tale.
