We had the chance to have the sun for a while as well as the awesome clouds on the sky. The value you get for the ticket is not balanced.

Nice to visit since all the works. Good visitor centre and friendly staff who seemed to want to be there. Good access by bus and easy to get good views of stones. Visitor centre OK, although could be interesting if busy.

I went here on the day of the winter solstice, which was interesting as you could see the modern druids preparing for their evening rites. The stones itself are slightly unimpressive and don't live up to the hype, it's nice to have seen them just to say you have. HOWEVER! The visitors centre is a definite must see and see... More

Good audio guide. No proper pathway - prepare for a lot of mud walking to and around the attraction on a rainy day. Invest in some cement and a shovel to put a proper pathway around the attraction! The attraction itself is sealed off, you can't actually walk in through and around the monument stones which was disappointing if understandable... More

otherwise, i wouldn't have gone there. It took almost a day to go and come back for Stonehenge and pricey as well. But getting able too see the countryside of England was a nice opportunity.

Stongehenge is one of those locations that you 'must do' when you are in England. And I agree. It was definitely worth going!! You do have to book your time slot... but it was AMAZING! There were barely any people when we went, meaning we got photos without tourists in it! Frustrating how far away you are - but when... More

It was pouring rain when we went, so we had to wait a bit to walk around and get some pics. However, it was still beautiful. To think that people without the equipment we have today were able to put together all those rocks, and with a purpose, is just amazing. Visited Dec 2009.

Stonehenge is an outstanding (pre) historical landmark. We paid extra to go inside the circle, and the experience was well worth the cost. We arrived early in the morning just after sunrise a couple of weeks before the winter solstice. It was cloudy, but just after we arrived the sun broke through the cloud cover and the ambiance was amazing!... More

Our tour guide warned us that we would be disappointed and he was right. You can't get with 100 feet of it, and it's tiny. It's cool to say that you've been there, but it's a let down.
