This is a very small historical site, but for history buffs it is very interesting. There are leaflets next to a gate which detail a lovely walk you can go on and look at some more of the history of the area.

Do read up on the history of Stonehenge contained in the latest English Heritage guide on Stonehenge as it explains also a summary of the Durrington Walls and Woodhenge, putting the sites into context. We visited Stonehenge first and then a short drive down to Durrington and Woodhenge. If you are interested enough the purchase the OS map of Stonehenge... More

The purpose of my October visit was to play in concert for the Durrington Walls bands 10th anniversay concert. Durrington is a nice friendly village and well worth a visit.

You will find no toilets or restaurants here, and the place itself is unspectacular. However, if you have been following the archaeological work on Avebury & Stonehenge, it is a must-see. The Cuckoo Stone is newly excavated, and the information boards detailed. If one is travelling to view the neolithic monuments which abound here, Durrington must be on the itinerary.

Although there is not much to see here, just ridges and earthworks, this area was where all the people who built and visited Stonehenge stayed and traded. Apparently this was a huge town for its day with everything you would need to live.

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.
