Asides from the stones themselves, which are great to see in real life, the staff are extremely informative and forthcoming, and the exhibition centre provides a lot of extra information, particularly with the first part which takes you through a visual tour through time of the henge.

For a world heritage site that is owned by no one EH make this incredibly difficult to see and appreciate and hugely expensive. My advice don't park in the expensive money spinner of car park which is badly organised and a mile away but park to west of Amesbury and walk carefully across main rd and view for free there!!...

Stonehenge is one of the most suggestive places I've ever visited. There are lots and lots of tourists. It's advisable to book it in advance. There are many interesting displays at the visitor centre.

The site is completely open during the Summer Solstice celebrations (the eve and the day of the Solstice) and that means you could even touch the stones. If you don't mind the druids, lots of people, the music, the different atmosphere that it can bring, it's definitely a must go - an unique awesome experience to have. It's family friendly... More

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.

you need to know what you are seeing and once you do, it is wonderful. consider it's age, construction and all the variables and you will be staggered. superb visitor centre and transport to the site. just go and look!

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
