This is probably a bad thing. The visitor's center is a land train ride away from the actual site, and of course offers a gift shop and cafe. The fee to visit the site isn't super cheap. All that is fine, though - proceeds support preservation of historic sites throughout England, so if getting a little tourist sheen on it... More

Overall the experience was great. I have always wanted to see Stonehenge and, since I live near London, it was the perfect way to get there. The bus driver was extremely friendly and highlighted some interesting and hilarious things on the drive. We were given wrist bands ahead of time so we did not have to worry about tickets once...

My 6 year old daughter was desperate to go and see the stones and we debated heavily, having checked the website on my phone and seen that 2 adults and a child cost £36.10 to visit! But as she was so keen we bit the bullet. Only to find on arrival that the price is actually more than £38! The... More

Fascinating visit to this historic site last weekend. Have been before but there is now the benefit of a new visitor centre and some interactive displays. You also have the opportunity to approach the site on foot across some open fields, which gives a wonderful perspective. We are English Heritage members so the whole thing was completely free - icing... More

First time I have gone to Stonehenge since the Visitors Centre opened. Everything is accessible and well planned out. The Land Rover trolley system works well and you have plenty of time to absorb the atmosphere of the stones. My granddaughter loved it and said it was awesome and took selfies to send her friends. The exhibition too is an... More

I am not totally sure why these monoliths are popular.. I saw rocks, sheep and fields... Incredibly windy.. Easy to get ticket at entrance and trolley to the area.. Visitors centre, restaurant, gift shop.. I truly believe the majority of people enjoy/love SH and I would say that unless it is something you truly understand/believe in, you may be bored...

Save yourself a small fortune and take a look from the A303 for FREE. Now I appreciate these sites need maintaining but £38 for a family ticket is a rip off. As a footnote, quick Google search shows five directors English Heritage are being paid over £100k each with the Chief Exec raking in £20k more than the Prime Minster,... More

Stonehenge is a magnet for tourists. You will find out when trying to get a ticket. Now, with the new transport system to Stonehenge, it is quiet pricy for a family to see the stones from a distance ...hm. Been there twice now, think this is enough.

Thank you for visiting Stonehenge. Stonehenge receives over a million visitors each year, and the low level ropes are in place in order to preserve and protect the monument and the fragile archaeology underfoot, near to and within the Stone Circle. During normal opening hours visitors are restricted to an outer path at Stonehenge, with closer access on the west... More

Wondered if this was a tourist trap/rip off. But once you meet the extraordinary staff and board the train, you are literally transported to another time. The layout is superb. The audio is over the top informative. But you must walk the exhibition hall. Excellent presentation. Not ambivalent any longer. First rate throughout.

Visited as a family of 4 (children 6 & 4), it is very busy and not very well stewarded. For your money you get access to the visitor exhibition some dwelling reconstructions and access to the henge (you can either walk or use the land train. The shop and cafe are probably bigger than the exhibition and whilst interesting it... More

Thank you for visiting Stonehenge. We are pleased you enjoyed seeing the Stone Circle and listening to the audio guide and we are delighted that the children enjoyed the audio visual exhibits. We are sorry however that you didn’t feel your visit was good value for money. The entrance fee is not profit - it provides us with vital income... More
