“Quiet place, scenic, and right next to Woodhenge.”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

After enduring the crowds, gift shop, and commercialism of Stonehenge we decided to visit Woodhenge and Durrington Walls. 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.

You can simply walk throughout the Woodhenge area and then walk toward Durrington Walls from there. We spent almost an hour, and during that time there was only one other visitor. You are up on the side of a hill and had a nice view of the valley beneath you.

The combination of Woodhenge and Durrington Walls was a nice contrast to Stonehenge. You can get up close and personal to the site here, compared to being fenced off from the Stonehenge attraction. Although the wood posts are obviously modern reconstructions, seeing these ancient sites was a great complement that gives you a bit more insight into what is going on at Stonehenge.
