  • Stonehenge Admission Ticket

    1. Stonehenge Admission Ticket

    Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous prehistoric monument in the world. It was built in several stages, beginning as a simple earthwork enclosure. The unique linteled stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period, around 2500 B.C. Your timed admission ticket gives you access to a site that has continued to attract interest for centuries. Today Stonehenge, Avebury, and other associated locations comprise a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring a unique and dense concentration of prehistoric monuments. Stonehenge has been the subject of speculation and fascination since at least the early medieval period. How did Neolithic people construct this masterpiece of engineering using only the simple tools and technologies available to them? Hundreds of prehistoric objects from the Stonehenge World Heritage Site are on display in the visitor center. One of the new features at Stoneheng...

    The walk to the stones is lovely and well worth taking but I had a frail companion who ,whilst she loved the walk , could have done with a chair to rest half way but apparently it is national trust land not land belonging to English heritage ! There was a drone circling the stones making a ghastly humming noise . We asked the guards if they could remove it and they said it was beyond their control as the drone was being operated by someone off site . This is a shame as it slightly spoiled the atmosphere .

  • London: Stonehenge Half-Day Tour

    2. London: Stonehenge Half-Day Tour

    Explore one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world on a morning or afternoon tour to Stonehenge. Travel to the site from London by air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy views of the English landscape en route. The tour is unescorted, but audio guides are available on arrival.  Situated on Salisbury Plain in the Wiltshire countryside, the cluster of 40-ton rocks were constructed more than 5,000 years ago. Although the function of Stonehenge is still a matter of fierce debate, what is known about the UNESCO World Heritage Site is that it has been a site of pagan worship for centuries. Make up your own mind as you uncover the history behind the extraordinary monument. A new world-class visitor center is now a short shuttle bus ride away from the stone circle site and combines cutting edge audiovisuals with exhibitions of ancient objects.
