We decided to visit as we had just been to stone henge. While we didn't stay more than ten minutes it was an experience if nothing else. The wood has been replaced with small stone stumps and there is an information board. It was nice to be somewhere calming after the manic tourism of stone henge. It's free and not... More

This is a must, it pre dates Stonehenge and is in the same location as the site of the people who probably built Stonehenge. Its such a pity that the wooden posts that marked the actual site of the original holes had to be removed because no permissions were given to put them there (Didn't have jobsworths 4500 years ago...

Although I didn't expect huge wooden poles to still be standing after 2300BC I certainly didn't expect them to have been reproduced (?) by small concrete posts. Car parking was poor and I wouldn't advise anyone to go out of their way to visit this site.

I think the posts where the wood once stood would have looked better if it was in wood rather that concrete. I only saw in books after what it should have looked like and think a picture at the site showing this would have a greater impact. There's also not much information about the child buried in the centre. I... More

If you want to visit a small plot with some wooden stakes in the ground, be my guest. All I can say is "it's free". If you walk for a couple of miles across local walkways you can get a good free view of Stonehenge though.

Quickly passed the turn off for this place, but went back to see it. It is quite interesting to see the stones marking where the wooden posts would have been. Interesting to read the plaques, and it is free!

We're lucky enough to live nearby and go to Woodhenge almost every other weekend. The wooden posts are quite interesting and there's a sign with some information on how they were discovered etc. If you enjoy a long walk you can visit the field right next to Woodhenge and walk right to the back of it, through the gate and...

Right next to Durrington Walls you'll find the site of Woodhenge - obviously the original wood has long since perished so there are markers to indicate the circles here, though the original heights could have been as high as 9m. Walkable from Stonehenge, it will add the to history and mystery of this whole landscape. There is a signboard but... More

The henge monument today has coloured concrete posts to mark out where the tall wooden posts would have been thousands of years ago. There is a sign board with limited information there too. Probably worth a visit to Stonehenge for more interpretation of the larger area. Worth a quick stop by car or taking a walk from the Stonehenge site.
