We did the stone circle tour and it was worth every penny. Such an amazing place. Be sure to check the weather report and take an umbrella if it's calling for rain!!!

We last came here about 20 years ago. It felt like you were entering a prison with lots of fences between you and the stones. Now there is a good visitors centre, with good food and the fences hace gone leaving much better views of the stones.

Pretty neat. Something I can check off my bucket list. If you know how it was designed/made, it makes it alot more interesting, so learn a little before you go.

This attraction 5000 years old heritage site and contains only big pieces of stones therefore people who are expecting something different considering wonder of the world then please avoid this place. :) At the entrance...

Wow! I have always wanted to come here and when you are standing in front of these ancient stones an eerie feeling kind of comes over you and you drift back in time to a place long ago. It really is a sacred kind of place and the stories of the people that used to come there for the solstices... More

We have been to Stonehenge many, many times but this was our first visit since they opened the new Visitor Centre. And it is absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed our visit and found it extremely informative as well as beautiful to look at. We loved the new gift shop as well. We look forward to visiting again on a day... More

Make sure to understand the history of Stonehenge before witnessing it or you maybe find it a bit "sterile" or "boring".
