Really interesting site. Yet all the changes to a the pathways have taken away any chance to stop and reflect. Herding people down 2 meter wide paths is just overcontrol too far. Visitor centre is interesting but again overcontrolled.

Visited in the dead of winter when few visitors around. Absolutely stunning as always. Improvements to visitors centre and car park have transformed the experience that used to be drab and dreary into something that is now genuinely world class and able to support the vast numbers of tourists it attracts.

Very well organised. Although there were many people there it did not feel that way. Book on line for a time slot and then you don't have to queue up. The head sets are worth it as you learn so much more or you can down load an app for free. heaps of parking and very friendly staff.

My Danish friend hadn't been to Stonehenge so we set out from Hampshire early, it took us about an hour drive. We were able to park around the back and walk up the path to avoid the 15 quid entrance fee. We were still only ten meters behind the fence where the paying patrons would be. We watched the sunrise.... More

My two daughters (2 and 6) and I visited on our way home from a camping trip and it was pouring with rain. This did not deter us. The girls loved it. I had been as a child but was impressed at how close we were to the stones, I did not remember being that close previously! The new visitor... More

Awesome visit to Stonehenge. Even though is was a cloudy day, my visit was mystical. To see this iconic place, it was a bucket list location for me. The visitor centre and the info from the audio tour( which you can download the App from the Apple Store) was terrific. More Living interpretative characters would only enhance this mystical place.

There's lots to the Stonehenge than just stones and shapes. It was interesting to learn about the history and how it was assembled in the past. There are voice-recording guides to explain these in detailed. You won't get to walk among the stones and can only admire them from far. You can take a free shuttle bus to the stones,... More

I have always wanted to go visit Stonehenge just to see what it is really like. But i was disappointed in the fact how 'people' or shall i say the English Heritage have transformed this random landmark in the middle of fields to a money grabbing place that is still over 1.5 mile away from the tourist 'entrance'. I was... More

With so many reviewers unhappy with the cost, the bureaucracy, the distance you see them from after paying so much etc... I decided to pootle along in my car in the morning (7am) to see if I could find this 'free way to see Stonehenge' that I'd read about. Sure enough, as I drove along the A303 (towards Amesbury, so...

Very good experience all round. £5 for the car park, which is refunded when you buy a ticket to see Stonehenge. Buses running constantly up to the stone circle, lots of information, displays and things to do. All in all a great historic day out. Allow at least a couple of hours to not feel rushed. The gift shop sells... More
