Went to the Stonehenge as part of a tour. I didn't think we needed the two hours allotted here to see "a bunch of rocks" but after going through the site and learning what there was to learn I realized I was very wrong! There is so much history in this attraction and I wished later that we had more... More

My husband and I visited Stonehenge in late June, along with our three teenaged children, one of their friends who came along on our UK trip, and another close friend of mine. We were in awe of Stonehenge the moment we got there. We had booked our tickets in advance, and I wanted to go straight to the site rather... More

We went to stonehenge on our way to Bath as I wanted my sister and brother-in-law to have a remarkable last day on their UK visit. It has been years since I was there last and I was disappointed in the new developments at the site. The stones are (as you might expect) the same as they were when I... More

Oh dear - a wonderful site but seemed poorly organised with too much queueing, and too much selling. We got there late in the day, but still queued for tickets - plenty of time to have the "join English Heritage" marketing bit. Then queued for the bus/train - and for goodness sake make sure you haven't had anything to drink... More

You can't be in the area and not go see Stonehenge! We had purchased tickets for 5:30 but got there a bit earlier and were able to get in with the 4:30 group. Given it was towards the end of the day I suspect there were a lot less people, and we were able to get parking very close to... More

Some people are saying that you have to buy tickets in advance... not at all. You can definitely do this on your own without an organized tour group as long as you have a car. The lines at the ticket offices are different for individuals vs. groups. Don't get sticker shock, though! It's pretty pricey to see a pile of... More

I agree wholeheartedly with Mike M. I had been there years ago when I could touch the stones, no visitors' center. But they have done a very responsible job. The gift store is very organized and classy and the movies on the wall of the changing of times from the beginning to present, with snow and stars, was enthralling. We... More

Booked the timed tickets well ahead, checked in and got on the small shuttle train to the site. Then there they were - a circle of big rocks. Still today there is so much that is not known about them, most of the information on the audioguide sounded speculative at best. You walk around outside the stones and are not... More

Stonehenge was one part of a tour with Bath and Windsor castle. One of the best parts of our trip was our guide David Jordan. He truly made the places come to life with his knowledge and love of the places we saw. Wonderfully enthusiastic and I appreciated his comments to put the cameras down and experience the places.

I have been to Stonehenge a number of times, but this was my first time going with the new visitor centre. This has been a huge improvement. It is now possible to learn a bit more about the Neolithic people who made this site. I liked the reconstructions of the huts with a person explaining how the replicas of flint... More
