The last time I was at Stonehenge was back in 1990, and even then, the facilities were a disgrace. No longer - the new visitor centre is as amazing inside as it is to look at. The museum is well laid out and the 360 degree view of the stones as you enter the museum is worth taking time to... More

Had a great view from the car on the drive up. Then seemed to drive miles passed to get to the car park and visitors centre. I am a National Trust member so was free affiliate entrance booked in advance. Caught the bus to the stones. Bus driver very helpfully chased after someone who had left their car keys behind....

I had visited Stonehenge many years ago when it was just the circle of stones which the public could go right up to. Nowadays there is a perimeter fence around it to preserve the archaeology under the ground which has not been excavated. it is nevertheless still very impressive. It is some considerable distance from the visitor's entrance however, there... More

Stonehenge is one of the worlds greatest mysteries - 5000 years of history before our very eyes - close enough to touch! Alas we are not allowed to touch the stones or walk among them anymore - that was a disappointment. The stones are not as huge as i expected - but awe inspiring nevertheless. Pick up an audio guide... More

It is a must see place even if you have seen it once it is a place you can return and visit and each time some new viewpoint or detail on the stone arrangements and the history of the making of Stonehenge

Beautiful heritage site with fascinating history. We didn't go right up to it as it was too costly and overcrowded, instead, you can get a peaceful and free view of the stones from small side streets around the field they stand in.

Wasn't sure what to expect prior to my visit. the visitor center was new and impressive, but you can't see Stonehenge proper, you can walk or talk the mini-bus. I can't speak enough about this world wonder. Simply jaw-dropping views 360 degrees around the perimeter of this wonder. There are audio tours that you can take at your leisure. I... More

Yes, it's a bit of a trek from anywhere, and no, there's really not much else going on once you get there, and yes, they make you pay for the privilege of seeing it, but it's one of those places you must see in your lifetime, if, like me, you love history! To see the posts and lintels and their... More

Very interesting, however it is expensive for what it is. I'm glad I went, and I'm very glad it was a nice day when we went.

Have always wanted to visit here and had the chance when my son was moved to Larkhill army base just up the road. After taking him down and stopping over at the local travelodge i decided to not miss my chance before driving home and paying here a visit. The road to the visitor center is a pain as it... More
