What people are saying:

Stonehenge (Stonehenge) is a popular tourist area in England, and is located in Emsbury, Wiltershire, England about 120km away from London. Stonehenge is said to be the most famous prehistoric architectural site in Britain, and its origins and methods are still a mystery in archaeology. The Stonehenge, also known as the Round Stone Forest, is a large circle of dozens of stones, some of which are six meters high, and have stood on the plain for thousands of years. According to the guide, there are legends that several important positions in Stonehenge seem to be used to indicate where the moon is angry on the summer solstice day. And from the opposite direction it is exactly where the sun is falling in the winter solstice. In addition to the sun, the moon's landing point seems to be recorded. But the moon does not start from year to year like the sun, it has a 19-year lunar calendar. At the entrance of Stonehenge, there are more than 40 columns, lined up in six rows, which correspond to the northest position of the moon in the period, so the six columns are likely to represent the six cycles, i.e., the six solar calendars, and observe and record the moon's movement for more than 100 years. Stonehenge in a large open space, need to charge a very expensive ticket, if you don't want to pay tickets and look far away, no, it is far away, not even a little can not see, so everyone will dispel this "free" idea. There is a lounge area, food and drink, I went in July in the summer, the hottest month in the UK, and I didn't want to buy a frozen coffee, only hot coffee in the lounge area.

    Great place to visit

    Great place to visit. The visitor centre is a great improvement and the exhibitions are very good. Staff are polite. The prices could be cheaper, the cost of food is very high.

    Amazing early morning tour

    I highly recommend this tour where you can visit the site in a small group before it opens. It was magical. And our guide Chris was very informative. Well worth the money.

    Expensive

    Very expensive to see what should be free of charge. We refused to pay and a simple Google search shows a public footpath that gets you close enough!

    Bad start

    The website needs an update.... the digital tickets which you get on email are not available ... even if it says “no need to print” you have to walk 30 min to the visitor centre just to print tickets ...

Additional Information

Introduction

Stonehenge is located on the plains of Salisbury, southeast of Bath, England. It was built in about 4000-2000 B.C. In 1130, a British priest happened upon Stonehenge when he was out walking. The magnificent stones each weigh nearly 30 tons on average, and their arrangement and intended use still largely remains a mystery.
