I am amused by some reviewers on Stonehenge. It seems they think there is some entertainment aspect that should be connected with this site. So they report - it's rocks. Well, yes, it's rocks that have a mystery of placement and purpose. Why are they there? What were they used for? That is the entertainment. Discovery, connecting to the past... More

Most disappointed with the design of the new visitor centre - perhaps English Heritage should have employed a professional architect to design it!! There should also have been more ticket booths so be prepared to queue - especially at peak times and holidays. Now for the GOOD - Definitely worth going to visit, the land train was comfy and clean... More

Well organized site, you can prebook tickets to enter. A shuttle service from visitors center to the monument. It is an impressive place for sure. Endless green fields and there in the middle of nowhere this complex of stones built thousands of years before christ. Which proves the existence of a distinct prehistoric civilization in South West England.

My friend and I visited Stonehenge, chosing to enjoy the mile walk in the lovely September morning to the stones themselves. We somehow missed the audio guide booth, the ticket collector didnt even mention it and it was behind the ticket booth so look out for it if you want one! My friend has lived in the area for 30...

If I were reviewing the stones they would get five. If I were reviewing the experience it wold get one/ two. My honest opinion is that English Heritage has messed this up. The melee at the new visitor centre, the 'heaving' cafe, lack of seats etc put me off completely. The awful chaotic shuttle service would have been the last... More

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England, about 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks. It is in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and... More

Stone Henge is much better than it used to be! With the new beautifully architecture on the visitors centre which while some do not like, I think it met certainly my needs and expectations! Including a restaurant, shop, museum etc. Excellent. The staff were also al helpful and knowledgeable and all seemed happy to be working there. The journey in... More

Definitely worth heading to, how exactly were they set there and arranged the way they are. I was lucky enough to see them on a perfectly sunny day. Was really nice!

When we were there and I found out that (bless him) he'd paid £15 each for the privilege I kind... More

First of all, I love the new visitors centre - architecturally that is. Much better that this is situated away from the stones. I was disappointed with the museum. I had hoped there would be a bit more there, especially considering the new higher price entrance fee. We took a picnic, but sadly there are only a few benches to... More
