Stonehenge Circle Access viewing- tips?

Hi everyone,

I will be doing the Circle Access sunrise viewing of Stonehenge next month.

Are there any tips that you can give to enhance my visit? Anything I should be looking/not miss while in the circle?

Thanks for any help.

Christopher Wren's graffiti.....and some much older graffiti on stone 53 which is of Bronze Age origin, 4,000 years old.

Are you arranging your own visit to the inner circle or have you arranged a tour/tour guide? My wife and I planning to visit in September.

Pre-order a guidebook to be waiting for you if you don't have a guide to explain things, or read up everything you can before. You won't have audioguides or anything.

Go to the loo on the way down (I generally stop at the Solstice Services; the Co-op) as facilities won't be open at Stonehenge.

Look for the face carvings on the outer edge of Stone 53 facing west (and also on the stone next to it facing south)

Thanks Gilligan ... appreciate the tips. Especially the loo stop for the girls. I haven't heard about faces on stones before. Interesting.
