Having moved from Essex to Swindon some 6 years ago, it was on my local bucket list of things to do. Visited last sunday on a whim. I was quite surprised at the individual ticket price to be honest (about £20), but instead signed up for an annual membership to English Heritage, which seemed great value in comparison to a one off visit. The site itself is fascinating and I guess that if you are considering a visit here, you will find it fascinating too. In terms of the organisation, one of the best aspects of the visit, is the enthusiasm of the staff. There were numerous guides at the stones and around the site in general, who clearly had a passion for their subject and were able to answer any questions you might have. I understand from other reviews I read that these guys are volunteers. Irrespective as to whether this is true, they are a great addition to the attraction, and if they do it all for nothing, then fair play. There was a very regular bus service from the visitors centre to the stones, and a great audio guide. Visitors shop and cafe was a bit on the pricey side. Stonehenge is a national treasure. Go and see it, the place is full of mystery, and a sense of earthiness, if that makes sense. Wonderful experience, I now want to learn more!
