We visited in January, winter, off season time, so there were very few visitors and had 2 hours, which was enough with audio-guide. We took a bus tour there that included the entry fee. Then a short trip with another bus to the actual site from the Visitor Centre. The site management are really trying to make lots of money... More

I did this on a bus tour which also included Avebury and the Cotswolds. For some reason the bus driver gave us an hour here. It was nice to see but I was done after 15 minutes. I realise a lot of people visit, but to have the whole structure roped off was disappointing. There's nothing that remarkable about it... More

You must now pay £14 to go nearer the landmark. There is a visitor's center with a cafe and small shop. From this place they will bring you via shuttle to the site.

If you plan on seeing Stonehenge in the winter, wear waterproof shoes as the ground is wet and muddy. Bring adequate warm hats, jackets and gloves. Stonehenge is now fenced and you can not get closer to the monument as we did 6 years ago. They now have souvenir shop and a restaurant where you can buy sandwiches, soup, beer,... More

I was waiting for this. Received a pleasant sight. Easily accessible. This is a good family program.

I've been to stonehenge three times, and each time it's a wonderful experience. There's something about it that's calming and blissful, regardless of the amount of people there. The stones offer a 360 degree opportunity for amazing photographs, and the audio guide that is included in your ticket price is very informative and just the right length for a leisurely... More

Gonna find this difficult to put into words. I went just expecting to see a historical monument. But Stonehenge is more than that. Even though it was busy when we went I found it incredible. It was well staffed by informative, but non intrusive staff. It holds a mystery, is magical, spiritual and very atmospheric. Never thought I'd have thought... More

Had always wanted to visit Stonehenge, didn't realise you could get a great view from driving along the road! Tickets were reasonably priced (£14 adult ticket), with shuttle buses to take you from the visitor centre to stonehenge itself and audio guides included. Went on a sunny but freezing cold day, but still very enjoyable. Very impressive to learn about... More

It seems that the first tour of the day and the last tour of the day allows you to walk through the inner circle. It was well worth the trip and the way in which the rocks were moved there is a mystery.

I just expected to see the well known windows wallpaper. - But wow! This place is magic. Unbelievable that these stones are 4000 years old. - Its expensive 15GBP but I'd call it a once in a lifetime thing! Glad I came here!
