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...

Difficult to see but go for a look anyway, the entire region is fascinating. Check out the wood henge also (replaced with cement markers these days).

When visiting Stonehenge you must include the nearby Durrington Walls and Stonehenge. Only by visiting these site together do you really get a clear picture of the history and enormity of these historical sites.

It was so peaceful after Stonehenge - and I'd definitely visit Durrington AFTER you've been to Stonehenge You then have a sense of what it's all about. Not a must see but defintiely worth it if you have a little free time

Worth visiting with other nearby neolithic sites. There is little to see compared to some of the neighbouring sites but limited information at this site and more at the new Stonehenge centre help bring this impressive massive earthwork to life. Woodhenge, with its Ministry of Works miniature concrete pillars, is adjacent and again worth seeing as part of a wider... More

Went here after visiting stonehenge as it was a major bronze age settlement and stonehenge visitor centre had some reproductions of dwellings based on excavations here. It's basically big fields opposite woodhenge. Nothing to see other than an information sign and fine views of the countryside.

Little publicised site and well worth the visit. Stunning view from Woodhenge. Peaceful site and fascinating to imagine how it looked all those years ago. Plus The Cuckoo Stone.
