My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way back to London from Cornwall. Last year in September 2013. It is a Historic sight so it's a must see. It was a pretty cool experience. We luckily had great weather.

Whilst staying in the new forest last weekend, decided to travel from Lyndhurst on Saturday morning to see Stonehenge. Just passed Amesbury, we ended up in traffic where we sat for almost an hour. Eventually we turned off towards the entrance to be told parking was £5 which was refundable in the visitor centre. We only wanted to have a... More

I was honestly not expecting much after having heard from a few friends that Stonehenge was "underwhelming". I was really taken by surprise by how much I enjoyed this stop. It was quite crowded but not so terrible that it really took away from the experience. Overall I was impressed by the power and the history from this location. We... More

Everyone should go see this at least once. It just makes you look in awe and try to figure out how the heck they did it and why. We missed President Obama by one day and the day after we were here, they discovered more stones in the central section of the site. Amazing site but the drive there is... More

The shuttle bus services is good and plenty of parking. we had booked time tickets but probably did not need too. Nice big shop and a cafe. Was well... More

Beautiful Place But Very OverPriced. Gift Shop Way Too Small to Move Around In. Nice Walks Around The Area And Alot To Learn About.Recommend.

Was a little disappointing on our visit to Stonehenge. We drove many hours from Padstow and purposely dropped Stonehenge a visit, thinking it would be a worthwhile historical trip before heading back to London. Half of the place was covered up as some construction was undergoing. We had difficulties taking pictures of the Stonehenge from one angle and had to... More

Last time I visited we could still walk among the stones, you need to be a president to do it these days. In spite of this, it does mean good picture opportunities with no waiting for people to move. The new visitor centre is good, but we only had time for a brief visit. The shuttle bus was efficient with... More
