Now having read what other reviewers said, hindsight is a wonderful thing, but now I would recommend some prior reading or get a guide for this place. Durrington Walls and Woodhenge are next to one another, there are not entrance fees, parking is for 2 to 3 cars (there were other cars that were just parked by the road side),... More

To really understand what this wall is and where it is exactly, you really need to have a guide to point it out and explain it. The history itself is very interesting as is the research and digs that were undertaken.

Durrington Walls was once one of the most important Neolithic sites in England. It is 2 miles NE of Stonehenge and the A345 cuts across it. There is little to see today, but back in 2500BC it was a huge circular encampment with hundreds of houses within. There were a couple of timber henge monuments inside and an avenue lead... More

A great monument to have a look around but definitely read up on it before you go. If you have an interest in Stonehenge then definitely take some time to come here.

as a local its easy to miss what's close to home, the journey starts at the river then moves up to woodhenge, & durrington walls surrounds both and has the road running through it. no amenities here but plenty of parking

This was one of the landmarks of London. It was an amazing structure, a beautiful bridge to see in London running across the Thames river.

This is part of English heritage, free with no visitor office or amenities of any kind except a smalI parking area and info kiosk. I did a little research of the area before we came here. The parking for Durrington Walls is shared with Woodhenge, therefore if I had not done some investigating I would have overlooked Durrington Walls all... More

All that is visible at the moment are the large earth banks. Worth visiting with wood henge. Don't visit if you need more.

after we had been to Stonehenge we drove around the corner to Woodhenge, which is much quieter and great for meditation and reflecting. it is great to read the information boards and find out about it and find that this is the real place things happened, not Stonehenge. we also discovered the ancient cuckoo stone and had a lovely walk...
