“Intact and stunning”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This is well worth the trek and the village is incredible as are the chambers, largely intact with a real atmosphere of our ancestors. I have visited many many times and have never been disappointed and it is never busy there. The beach is close by and there are some great places to beach comb. x

“If you like ancient history this is worth the trip”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

If you are in St Mary's, you can take a bus.....its about 15 minutes to walk into the entrance area....but the sight is magical. You can just imagine what happened and where 4000 years ago. A must if you have gone all the way to St Mary's/

“Interesting”

Just an interesting piece of history about the Scilly isles.
Not well signposted to get to, but just use a map.
