It is an English Heritage site but also free for National Trust members - otherwise £15 per adult ticket was a bit steep but there were many concession tickets available. The four of us that went only one paid full price, one was free and two concessions so it was not too bad over all. Maybe this is not the... More

we brought tickets on the day which did not cause a problem. Admission was £14.50 per adult which includes audio guide shuttle to stones if you don't want to walk and admission to information centre. I was amazed at the size of Stonehenge and so glad I have seen it up close.

It was a privilege to be able to enter the stone circle as I was participating in a Celtic Handfasting ceremony. Seeing the sun coming up through the stones was breathtaking. It was the first time I had visited. I wasn't able to go into the new visitors centre as it wasn't open but will return. The loos were OK... More

A must visit attraction. Yes, it is just the 'ring of stone,' but the sense of history is well worth it. The visitors centre is great, especially the exhibition. The staff are all pleasant and very helpful (especially David, in the exhibition). Our kids enjoyed the shuttle bus to the attraction. This is a place to visit for those who... More

First of all, the tickets are very expensive!!!!!!! It takes 15 mins to actually get to it via a bus after parking. Then to our disappointment, you can't actually go up to the stones, despite many pictures on google showing people touching them!? The trip is actually pointless unless you get an audio guide, which is just as boring for... More

Had a lovely visit here. Obviously an English Heritage site but also free for National Trust members - otherwise a hefty £15 per ticket. Exhibition and shop are nice, as was cafe although a little pricey. Beautiful building and free shuttle bus to site.

...only to be surprised how small it actually is. Stiil, you have to do it. It's like 1-2 hour ride from London, so it will not take much time to get there. The parking lot is a little far away from the venue but the tourist bus will take you there in no time. And it's more interesting like that.... More

Stonehenge is somewhere I have always wanted to visit, we were staying in the area so decided to drive down and have a look, we booked online, (which I would definitely recommend anyone do if they can as the queue for tickets was pretty long), and were allocated a half-hour time slot in which to aim to arrive, due to...

I went to visit Stonehenge as I was in the area for a wedding, I also have an English Heritage membership so I wanted to make the most of it. I would recommend visiting as it is very interesting to hear the theories as to why the stones are there, as well as seeing the stones themselves. It's quite expensive... More

Disappointed in the new hassles to visit Stonehenge. Instead of parking near the site like you could in the past, you must visit the visitors center off-site, take a bus, and basically waste a lot of time doing things I don't want to do. I just wanted to see the stones and make this visit a quick one as we... More
