Stonehenge is an amazing piece of history and it deserves a better visitor center, considering the price you pay for a ticket. There are a couple of people that explain what life and people were in those times but that's it. You can't get much information from the visitor center. The monument is amazing but it's sad people have to... More

I've been periodically traveling to England for nearly fifty years but never saw Stonehenge until this summer. Wish I hadn't waited so long because if I had made the trip earlier (before 1977), I might have been able to walk among the stones and actually touch them. The closest you can get now is a few yards. They are still... More

Stonehenge is really curious. Why? When? Who? How?... you ask a lot of thugs about that but anyone have an answer. It's a interesting place.

I came with mixed feelings because I was aware that the stones cannot be approached closely. However, despite restriction this I enjoyed the experience very much. Stonehenge attracts more than 1 million visitors per year and if they were allowed to trample the site and deface the stones it would destroy the very place they had come to see. And... More

My wife thought it looked bigger on TV, but she needs new glasses. The drive to the site on the bus, the walk around, the entire area is very nice. What an amazing place to be able to behold, realizing that it was constructed for whatever purpose over 4000 years ago. It has a presence all it's own and I... More

Visited with 3 children (aged 8, 6 and 5). The younger children loved running around in the open grounds. They were able to explore the huts and asked a lot of questions from the staff. Staff were friendly. The shuttle to and from the stones was prompt and frequent. I had thought that we would be able to get closer... More

Visiting Stonehenge is a must when you are near Bath or within 100 miles. The Brits have done what the Italians and Greeks have not - displayed their amazing monument (truly a wonder of the world) in a stunning and tasteful manner -without all sorts of commercialism and honky tonk booths. You park your car quite a ways away and... More

The circle of rocks itself aside, the museum is quite well presented and the audio tours are fairly detailed. The overall site is huge, and unless you have a large amount of time you're not going to see it all.
