Being members of English Heritage and going to nearby Longleat it was obvious to visit here. The stones are mesmerising. The audio tour is excellent. We had our two boys of 5 and 7 and they enjoyed the audio too. The bus shuttle is very frequent from the detached visitor centre which was quite a let down although very modern.... More

So you pay around 17£ to get a closer look at the famous rocks. There are no interesting tales to read about or well, anything because nobody knows anything about this place. A bunch of "may have been used for ___________" is not worth the money if you ask me unless you are one of those people who likes to... More

We love Stonehenge to pieces, it's extremely historic and moving. This review is primarily about the overly hold rooks around there. They are very frightening, coming up close over you head- bad for young children. I would suggest closing the attraction for a few hours, and getting some marksmen down to control the population quickly out of the public eye.... More

Visited recently on our way through the south of England. I had read the +/- reviews regarding the cost and found it to be reasonable. We ordered online which meant we didn't have to pay for parking. Also if you book for a certain time don't worry if you're a little late or early, buses run all the time and... More

This was somewhere we thought we had to see and we were glad that we did. One of the things we really liked was that it was not too crowded when we were there. We were able to look at the structure and get pictures without others in the background. I was glad to listen to the audio guide it... More

We have travelled extensively throughout the world, Stonehenge was disappointing. The attraction is very simple and took very little time to complete. If you are passing by stop but if this is your only stop you might be disappointed. It's a circle you walk around, you don't get close.

If you choose to walk to the stones, the approach is grand. You get a feel for what folks would have seen and felt as they approached the standing stones. It makes you stand and think. Unsure if anything is better than viewing history and being enthralled.

First you pay to get dropped off at the Visitor Center parking lot. Then you find out that Stonehenge is actually 1.3 miles from the Visitor Center. For the pleasure of $22 per person plus $5 for an audio guide, you can get on a shuttle to the ruins. Once there, you find out thatt the ruins are fenced so... More

I have in laws on the south coast of England, so whenever I am in the region I try and see some places of interest. I had read up quite a bit about Stonehenge and watched plenty of documentaries about it, so I decided that I would visit when I was down over the Christmas holidays. Reading quite a few... More
