Not sure if this would have been particularly interesting without the dig going on at the time we visited. TBH didn't know enough about it before we went there and there doesn't seem to be an awful lot to see apart from Woodhenge in the field opposite. However I probably would go again as I love to imagine places how... More

2 miles away from Stonehenge former neolithic settlement just north of Amesbury. 4, 500 years old use the walking trail to explore it but side step the sheep poop as it is a grazing area.

This is located on a hill so can look down at England's countryside which is beautiful. It has the Woodhenge located here which is the Stonehenge's lesser cousin. I think it's interesting how the pillars looks but it's only a attraction if you are into archaeology or geography. However, this is a nice pit stop on your way to the... More

We parked immediately next to Woodhenge in a small three-car parking area. We were the only car there on a beautiful summer morning. There is no admission charge. Durrington walls forms part of the trail from the River Avon to Stonehenge. There are only wood markers left now so not a lot to see but there is quite a good... More

I have just rated Wood Henge which is close by, and I would make the same observations about the Wallls. I have read quite a lot about the ancient people who established a settlement and henges in the area a can picture the scene that would have been prevalent. However, I have taken friends to the site and they regarded... More

We walked from the Stonehenge car park to Durringham Walls and stopped to eat our picnic lunch sitting looking at the area where out ancestors may have lived. amazing. Nothing to see other than a green area of land in a dip, but there is a sense of history and continuity.

Interesting landmark to see, with some good vantage points from Woodhenge. Will be interesting to see how it is changed if they excavate the stones recently found below.

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
