it was a cool day when I was there, but I got bored because there was only rocks and you can not touch them.

The only reason why I don't give it a 5 stars rating it's because of the price. If you don't want to pay £15 per person and don't mind looking at it from far away, you can simply park on the main road as so many people do. I loved visiting inside and the museum was extremely interesting. Probably not... More

Our first visit to Stonehenge and we all enjoyed it. We couldn't believe the number of foreign visitors there were, it seemed the British were a minority. We'll worth going to even if some think it's just a pile of stones.

Sorry to pay over £40 for a family to get in and see the stones, should be a national disgrace, especially when it's tax payers money flooding into pay for the visitor center. Should be ashamed

A great historic site to visit. Took a 1.5 hr car journey from London. Was crowded during holiday but the site was clean and efficient queues. Nice exhibition as well. Kids loved it very much.

I was surprised to find no one had mentioned the absolutely horrendous backup on the roadway going both directions as one passes Stonehenge. If you are just a traveler who happens to be on the A303 during daylight hours, be prepared to sit in standstill traffic for up to one hour as you approach the site. The problem is that... More

A little disappointed about the size of the stones cos I thought it should be very huge but actually not. Maybe longtime history cause the stone became decade.

I have wanted to visit Stonehenge for decades! Finally went and I guess it just wasn't what I hoped it would be. The new visitor center is very nice. I believe my issue comes from the amount of people flowing in and out and also that the stones are roped off and you can't really get close to them. I... More

Visited on a windy Thursday afternoon. It was very busy and the coaches kept pouring in..It is well set out with the circular walk around the stones. You are quite close and can take some great pictures. We were ferried in a coach and I was a bit suprised that we were expected to stand. It is only a short... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are really pleased that you liked the new visitor centre and got some good photos of the Stones. We hope you will consider a return visit when the Neolithic houses are completed and the landscape restorations around the monument are finished. More

Now that the visitor centre is situated away from the stones, you would have thought the parking would be sufficient for the number of visitors. We visited on a cold dreary day towards the end of Winter. We booked in advance as suggested by English Heritage (hence going on a cold dreary day!). We arrived mid morning to find the... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you booked in advance. Pre-booking is the only way to guarantee access on the day and at the time of your choice. Car parking spaces are held for pre-bookers and on busy days the car park may need to be closed to those who have not bought tickets in advance. We... More
