There is ample car park for the hordes of tourists descending on this leading attraction, undeterred by the rather steep admission fees. There is plenty of information about the site, conveyed in a very engaging way. The shuttle bus takes you from the tourist centre to the stones itself. They are not as tall as I had first imagined them... More

Book an early morning timed visit to Stonehenge. Well worth the cost and advance booking to get as close as you can to the historical stones. I visited Stonehenge in the 60's when i was a child and remember being able to walk up close and touch the stones, sit and picnic, Those days have long gone - but, with... More

No one really knows why the stones are set up like that. It's an okay place though. If you are going to see more than one of these attractions, I suggest to have a membership card which is much cheaper. This place also is pretty expensive too.

We stopped by after my trip to Bath. I thought it was a little pricey at £15 per person, but well worth the money to get to see the rocks up close. And it is only something you are going to do once! Due to previous wet weather, they had closed the path that goes all around, but for me... More

Highly recommend doing solstice visits, winter is less crowded. It was a well planned, safe event and an opportunity for my 15 year old daughters to actually touch the stones.

A must see when you visit London. Plenty of day tour arranged by local travel companies. You can book online in advance. Audio narration is available and you will understand more what Stonehenge is all about. Excellent historical site

First of all, don't pay for the tour. If you pay the tour (around 13 pounds) you get carried to the stones itself by bus, but you only get close to five meters to the stone circle. Just park at the museum (3 pounds or free after 15 o clock) and take a 15 minute walk to the stones. You... More

What a change from a visit many many years ago, well organised and very informative. The radio commentary an absolute must, helps you around the site describes what you are looking for and looking at. The English Heritage staff were very helpful. We will be back with the grandchildren at some point.
