my partner took me here on a surprise trip back from london, we’re both members of the national trust so it was free for us to get in, normal prices are around £21 and upwards but what people are forgetting when writing their bad reviews is; you’re helping to preserve such a national treasure. you aren’t allowed to touch or go into the circle because firstly the million people that visit every year, the foot traffic near the stones would turn the grass into mud and potentially destroy the stone and the architecture underneath would surely be destroyed.. it’s not worth ruining something so beautiful and mysterious because people want to touch the stone.. secondly the entire of stonehenge hasn’t been fully excavated (yet) and the amount of people who would be walking on the grass could ruin it. preservation is key. if you’re annoyed by the pricing etc.. look it up first before you go and get disappointed by how much things are. it’s really not difficult. anyway... it’s a beautiful landmark, completely shrouded with mystery, while the information on the audio guide (£6) is very informative and comes in different languages, there’s still a lot of stuff that’s probably gonna remain a mystery! which makes it all the more beautiful, there’s also an exhibition to the right i think, of the ticket desk with lots of different artefacts and information on how things were used back in those times, how things were made, but to give a bit of warning to some people, some of the exhibits DO contain human remains. there’s also the little huts which are really interesting too! people of all ages were there, from babies to id say roughly 80 odd.. it’s genuinely a really interesting place and for some, a once in a lifetime opportunity so it’s definitely worth it.. oh and to get to the stones; you can either walk 25/30 minutes and see other parts of stonehenge on the way up (we didn’t because i’m far too lazy to walk 30 minutes when i have sore feet) or you can get the bus at the back of the cafe/gift shop which is FREE every 5 minutes and it also brings you back down :-) bare in mind, i’m 22 and i loved every minute of it, so if you’re older or younger i’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy it too. don’t miss out just because some people have put bad reviews, go there for yourself! also; here’s some pictures i took today
