Stonehenge, we've all seen pictures, read about it, seen in on the telly. However, to see it in the raw as it were is definitely a must if you're in the general proximity. We went on a Saturday morning and it was packed. Hundreds of people, coach loads and tourists galore. To be honest I felt it took something away from the experience. I know that the The English Heritage couldn't do private tours, however for such a religious site it felt a little staged. The gift shop is no way big enough and for the amount they charge to get it to see it £7.80 per adult, you'd hope they'd have the funds to expand a little.

Disabled and pushchair access very good.

Overall, definitely a place to go and visit to say you've been. However, go at the start of the day so you'll get a more personal experience.

Now shelterd and protected from the hippy travellers of the free festival days there is something sanitised and slighly sterile about this our greatest of ancient monuments.
The Stones are now only accessible through the english heritage site and via a tunnel under the A344. The audio presentation is helpful and I would recomend a visit on a bleak and desolate day in winter. Traffic noise from the neighbouring A303 is lessen due to reduction in Caravans heading for weeks of sunshine and cream teas in Devon.
Even in the depths of winter it is hard to imagine the stones in their neolithic ceremonial form due to the hordes of toursits visiting them with cameras to take pictures back to Shanghai and Bejing.

It's worth the trip!
That's a simple half day sighseeing which in fact turns into 1 hour inside the park but it's really amazing see how would they've made that!
Take the afternoon tour and you'll get stunning photos of the sunset!

I first visited the stones thirty years ago, a nice trip and a remarkable lack of 'touristy' distractions. Now, the druids, druggies and tourism police have all but destroyed the ambiance; look at the stones from afar early in the morning and avoid paying 5 pence for a tiny packet of milk to dribble in your tea.

We went at 9:30 AM when they opened and it was amazing. Being winter the sun had just rose and there was quiet calm about the site. We were both in awe and loved every minute of it. The gift shop is mass chaos!
