    The other henge
    Free to visit English Heritage site. Close to the other Henge that the UK is famous for. It was a timber monument built around the same time as Stonehenge. The timbers are not there, but cement pillars have been constructed in their stead.

    A nice antidote to Stonehenge and just as interesting
    Well worth a stop here as an antidote to the madness of Stonehenge. The henge doesn’t survive, but the concrete posts mark out their positions. Someone had also marked out information on Fibonacci series on some of the stones, something I knew nothing about and was a bit much for my non-mathematical brain, but interesting nonetheless. You can see the Durrington Walls as well which are close to it. Would definitely recommend.

    Possibly Britain's most uninspiring tourist attraction
    A site so bad that you just have to go to experience it for yourselves. After the very real Stonehenge comes the extremely underwhelming Woodhenge A monument so significant that there's literally nothing left of it. Except for some 20th century pillars to indicate "come and look at what you could have won" there is precisely zero here of any interest or historical interest to the average person. My friend and I visited and we constantly laugh about how bad it was. Come see it yourself and be very disappointed

    Very interesting
    Built around the same time as the more popular Stonehenge with similar story overtones. Of course the wooden post are long gone but have been replaced with concrete ones. Its free and well worth a side trip.

    Worth a stop
    Stopped off after visiting stonehenge. We have visited before and its an enjoyable little stop. A nice place to sit and think about what it may have been like in the past. This time we found a random human tooth on the child's grave, which my kids found most curious. Worth a stop if your passing

    Historic but not a “Stonehenge” experience.
    Check out the details before visiting, if you’re expecting a “Stonehenge” then you’ll be disappointed. However, it’s to be seen once, it’s free and there’s parking along the road. There’s lots of walking around the site although Woodhenge is very close to the road.

We found this gem by accident after visiting the nearby Stonehenge.
Well laid out & informative information boards. Easy free parking.
The markers in the ground indicate where the original wood columns were placed (some up to 9m tall).
The only disappointment was that the marker posts were originally colour coded & this really helped you understand how the posts related to each other; the colours have now faded & it is tricky to make them out. A few pots of paint would do the trick of sorting this out.
Just a few hundred metres from Durrington Walls where the builders of Stonehenge & Woodhenge lived.
Worth visiting for adults & children.

As I was going to spend Solstice at Stonehenge, and having spent months learning all about Woodhenge and Durrington, was keen to see them all. The exhibition at The Natural History Museum really sparked my interest.
However car parks all closed and roads covered in No Parking cones for miles .
So very disappointed

I only discovered this site when visiting Stonehenge. It’s just a few miles down the road and therefore worth a visit. It is a significant monument and a UNESCO site.
It is quite unspectacular by comparison to Stonehenge but peaceful and thought provoking. The wooden posts have been replaced by concrete posts in the positions although you do not get the feeling of the grandeur and height described on the information boards.
If you have been to Stonehenge I recommend a visit here as part of the overall story and experience.

An area steeped in history linked with the stones about a couple of miles away. Concrete post show where the wooden ones were located in 2500BC. There is a drawing showing what they may have looked like way back when. Just a thought, why not actually put up wooden posts like the picture to give it an actual historical analogy.

It is a free attraction close to stone henge. There are no actual wood there. Instead there are cement poles in places. It's not crowded even in very busy weekends. Can cover within 10 minutes. Kids liked the fact that they could climb on the short cement poles. Recommended to see on your trip to stonehenge.

Morning stop-off enroute to Stonehenge.
We had the place to ourselves at 9am on the August bank holiday weekend.
Whilst there isn't a lot to see - just 100 year old concrete posts marking the wooden post holes, its still a historically important site next to Durrington Wells with much history and gave our later visit to Stonehenge more of a context.
Free parking with picnic benches next to the car park. Well signposted off the main road.
