Stonehenge, Amesbury

Stonehenge is one of the world's most impressive prehistoric monuments. The construction of the ditch and surrounding embankment dates to 3100 BCE, and radiocarbon dating indicates that placement of the standing stones took place between 2400 and 2200 BCE. Spend time in the visitor's center before viewing the site. The interpretive displays and exhibits here tell stories about the monument and explain the popular debates about its possible prehistoric uses. These will help give you context to appreciate its significance--though the age-old question of how the giant standing stones got there remains unanswered. The cafe by the entrance provides a place to grab snacks before you proceed to the site by shuttle bus. Buy your tickets online before visiting to avoid waiting in line at the ticket kiosk, and check the weather forecast so that you can dress appropriately. Our Amesbury visit planner makes visiting Stonehenge and other Amesbury attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Someone had told us not to bother with Stonehenge, but glad we did. The site is well organised - plenty of parking, good giftshop and cafe, then you get a short bus ride to the actual stones...  more »

  • We loved Stonehenge! We did an inner circle tour at sunset and it was beautiful. I highly recommend the inner circle tour if you have the time. You really get a sense of awe standing inside the stones. It's amazing that people were able to build something like this so long ago. It's cool they've figured out the exact areas the stones came from too.
  • I highly recommend Stonehenge if you have enough time in London for that or if you want to go out and see the outside. I went in a tour and it was fabulous, you don’t have to worry about to drive and very easy to get to the station call Victoria Coach Station ! If you have a car you can go there and manage better the time !! If you don’t have enough time just a couple of days is better enjoy London first . What saw at first was just a bored thing but you have to like the idea about the Stonehenge.
