I last visited Stonehenge about 30 years ago and to be honest I don't really remember much about it. As we were passing by on the way to Devon we thought we may as well stop and take a look round and we were glad we did. The new visitor's centre is a major improvement and very informative - with...

The standing stones are fantastic monuments in the landscape. Their sheer size suprised me when I saw them in person. The site itself was well maintained. However my main problem lies in the lack of written information around the site. The indoor exibition was also far too sparse. Very little information given regarding recent theories regarding the henge. Not a... More

Having been twice to Stonehenge before they built the old visitor centre, I agree that it was an eyesore. The replacement is a crime. It represents the ultimate Macdonaldiation of our culture and history. Each individual element is excellent. The sum total experience is one of going shopping in a mall. Do still go. The stones retain their dignity –... More

Worth a visit to tick off my list but nothing amazing - I much prefer Avebury - although you cant get all of it in one photo which is the why I think people rave about Stonehenge! And a bit expensive to get in at nearly £15 each - Avebury is free!

The new visitor center has you park away from Stonehenge and either walk or take a shuttle to the icon. I like their idea of showing Stonehenge in the middle of the plain without the old visitor center--it makes it much more peaceful and thoughtful an experience.

Me and my boyfriend were passing through this area so thought we would visit Stonehenge, we were shocked to have to pay £23 to see it.. I thought this was really expensive considering all we wanted was to go see it and not all the other cafe bits/shop etc. was just a bit naff as your stood so far away... More

Interesting site to visit. Well preserved and maintained. Well operated with no car access to the site, helps preserving it for future generations to also come and marvel at. Unbelievable history and amazing what human were capable of so many years ago. Include the nearby Woodhenge in your visit.

There are two different elements to a Stonehenge visit. The stones are an amazing attraction and the audio guide (included in ticket price or available for download on iTunes) is interesting. Good weather is an added bonus as visitors are able to explore the surrounding countryside. However, the new visitor centre is a great disappointment. The small museum contains 3... More

I would say this is something to do if you had the time and had nothing better to do. It's a bit out of the way and when you get there there is really just the rocks to see. The audio device comes with the ticket price. It explains the theories behind the stones. But nothing much else. Best to... More

The stones themselves are still awesome, this review is about the dreadful saga of actually reaching them. First you have the shuttle thing that we were herded like sheep into, it was reminiscent of third world transport with hard wooden seats no air con no information from the driver. Then you reach the totally awesome stones themselves. Having walked round... More
