An incredible site to visit. Visitor center is well done and shuttle to the stones is great. A must see.

Stonehenge is really a marvel, how it came about is a real mystery.
But the caretakers must add something to the experience for people hiking up to see it all the way, other than just picture-like stones lined up. Audio guide is a must, otherwise you would be spending all this money and time for literally just looking at ancient stones.

Thank you for your review. The audio guides are very good if you want to know more about the history of Stonehenge and surrounding landscape. Your entrance ticket also includes entry to the museum and special exhibition which goes further to explaining more about the Neolithic era.

We had wanted to see the new visitor centre since it was finished. The last time I went it was a fairly grotty experience with no way to feel the atmosphere of the stones. When I went as a child it was possible to walk among the stones but obviously, today that is not possible.

On arrival, there is ample parking close to the visitor centre and ticket office. We went with our eldest son, then 36 years old, and decided to walk to the stones along the two mile path to the stones. It was a cold day with rain threatening.
For those that have mobility difficulties there is a shuttle bus service.

At the end of our walk, the work done to the site makes it possible to feel a part of the history but making sure no damage can be done.
One downside is the proximity of the main road, but the planned tunnelling of that road should create an atmosphere that will finish the project.

On return to the visitor centre, we found the displays describing the geology, human activity and modern times was very informative. Obviously the interpretation of finds are constantly being reassessed so I am sure the project will reward further visits.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I discovered, to my delight, when I was researching this trip that it was free for National Trust members so an added bonus. There is a fence around the stones now but you still get the whole experience and there is so much information make sure you leave enough time. I would say a good 2-3 hours at least. If you want the hands on experience go to Avebury where you can go right up to the stones plus lots more interesting history to learn.

Came with familly from spain. I do think the price is very high for the number of activities, the museum is not translated in differents launguage, for a differents languages you will need to pay some extra with a 6£ book (8 pages max). Something to do once in life but not twice for sure... 83£ for 4 adults and 2 hours of tour.

Thank you for your review. You are correct when you say the information panels in the museum are only available in English. Unfortunately there is not enough space to provide translations for all of the languages frequently spoken by visitors to Stonehenge. The audio guide covers the exhibition as well as the stone circle and is available in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish and Polish so this is what we recommend for visitors who require a translation.

Entrance to Stonehenge is in line with the other major UK heritage attractions. Additionally, as English Heritage is a charity, any profit from Stonehenge tickets is used to support our work caring for over 400 properties and historical sites, many of which are free to enter.

It sounds like the visitor centre did not meet your expectations but I hope you were still able to enjoy your visit to the stone circle itself.

Stonehenge is one of the most known ancient wonders of the world, and has a stunning first view to it. However, it has much more mystery behind it. Was it a clock, ritual site, calendar, tomb, or something we don't know about? How did the stones, some which are over 25 ft tall and over 22 metric tons, get placed where they were? See if you can uncover the mystery of Stonehenge.

A must visit attraction from locals and tourists alike. A World Heritage Site, Stonehenge is known globally but the site has changed a lot in recent years. There is now a car park next to a large complex that houses a shop, cafe and sometimes exhibitions. You then catch a shuttle bus to and from the main attraction.

We visited by coincidence on Armistice Day when soldiers from the 14th Regiment of the Royal Artillery, based nearby, fired 100 rounds of gunfire at 5 second intervals, falling silent at 10.58, as the guns had done 100 years previously, followed by a 2 minute silence, as observed across the UK, at 11.am.

This meant that the path closest to the monument was closed for the duration of our visit, but we could appreciate the circle of stones from the more distant path, plus also see some of the other mounds, stones and markers in the landscape around it. When I was a youngster, you could actually walk in among the stones and touch them to feel their power and spirituality.

Stonehenge has a unique mystery about it, which is explained in the video and exhibition in the new Visitor Centre which also has a special exhibition from the British Museum showing the sophistication, beauty and artistic skill in the objects Stone Age settlers made and used, not to be missed. There is also a Sarcen stone for children (and Dads) to try to pull and replica stone age houses to visit.

The architecture of the new visitor centre, while contemporary, reflects the undulating landscape and the woods of trees around Stonehenge. Set away from the monument, visitors either walk to there or take the frequent shuttlebuses.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the special exhibition with the items on loan from the British Museum. They really are stunning aren't they! I think we sometimes look back at the past and think of our ancestors as savages but as you say, this exhibition illustrates how sophisticated they were. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it sounds like you really made the most of your visit.
