I would have liked to stand in the middle of the ring but of course I can't, no one can. This isn't so much the fault of the powers that be but the fault of the general public. I have travelled a lot and seen children touching the paintings inside the tombs in the valley of the kings, I know... More

I have always found Stonehenge rather underwhelming viewed from the A303 and the former facilities a national embarrassment close up. At last after decades of talking and probably millions of pounds in surveys and professional fees something has been done to bring dignity to the site. I have followed English Heritages proposals with interest and was keen to visit with... More

Stonehenge is well worth a visit especially with the new visitor centre recently opened. Full of facts and exhibits. Need to spend some time taking it all in. Beautiful countryside around and a visit to the village of Amesbury should be included in the trip, especially a visit to the ancient Church of St Mary and St Melor.

The new visitor centre helps, but the shear volume of visitors makes a visit a shuffle around with the flow of the crowd. The buses to and from the stones from the visitor centre were full to overflowing with lots standing as well. Personally I much prefer Avebury which is a lot bigger and I feel a lot more impressive... More

Worth a visit now that the new visitor centre is open, being a local, I haven't been there for years, the roads are awful especially in holiday time.

Had been looking forward to visiting Stonehenge for a long time. The trolley bus (a few carriages pulled by a Land Rover) is so slow, it takes forever to get from the visitors centre to the stones. Then you cant actually get that close to the stones, you walk around them and then back onto the trolley back to visitors... More

At last the visitors centre at Stonehenge offers a UNESCO standard trip. The information puts the history of the monument in context ,and emphasises it's place in the whole prehistoric environment.It is possible to spend a long time wandering the environment on a variety of marked paths,on a fine day, but there are free bus links from the centre to...

I did the tour to Stonehenge through 'The English bus'. The entry fee with a student pass was £7, else, it's £8. There is no guided tour at the monument, but our driver had given us some interesting tidbits of info before we reached there. The bathroom facilities were okay and there is food for purchase, if you're hungry. They... More

Stonehenge was our first stop on our way to Bath. I would recommend an hour or so there, learning about the formation of the stones, the people who may have put them there is quite interesting. Bear in mind you are just looking at stones, so your expectations must be in line. With that said the history is a marvel.

I'm embarrassed to say we almost gave Stonehenge a pass because of a less than thrilling visit a long time ago. This time, we improved our logistics, and found the English Heritage site had improved theirs, too. Last time, we drove out from London in a rental, challenged by UK cars and roadways -- we're from the U.S. -- and... More
