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.

All visitors should visit Woodhenge and Durrington Walls to get the full picture of life when Stonehenge was built.

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.

Durrington Walls is worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the area. It helps to have done a bit of reading first, but if not there are information boards around that will help to give you an idea of what you are looking at and how it fits into the whole story of the ancient Wiltshire...

Perfect day for a picnic and with 3 young children we started at Woodhenge then Durrington and finished at Stonehenge. We took a long some art stuff and made models of Wood and Stonehenge. We took a long a book, Stonehenge landscape, it explained about our history and what happened all around. We spent some time making dens and thinking... More

Come on! English Heritage and the National Trust need to make a bit more of this amazing site and area. If you have a few minutes you should go. It's very different to Stonehenge. A bit like the Egyptian Pyramids, it's the workers and community that makes the interesting finds, and has the fewest visitors. Evidence is growing about the... More

We visited this location, while in the area to see Stonehenge and Wood Henge. Such an old site, so much so that it is difficult to comprehend. Lovely to see the old site(s), and to look right down onto the nearby River Avon. A pity, however, that the local authority elected to run a road through this site ! Plenty... More
