General Information

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in the Salisbury area of Wiltshire, England. The monument consists of a ring of 13ft high stones thought to date back to between 3000BC-2000BC. It is argued what Stonehenge was built for, the most common theory is one of religion, others believe it was used as a place for healing due to the ancient theory that believed the sun and the moon could heal people. Stonehenge is still used in the modern day for spiritual ceremonies with people gathering for such events as the summer solstice.

Getting there

The sight is in a remote location and public transport links are poor. The best option is to drive, head for Basingstoke and you should see Stonehenge signposted. The nearest train station is Salisbury which is 9 miles away. You can get buses from some parts of the UK, including London; to ‘Amesbury’ from there, the sight is a couple of miles away walking.

Opening Times and Admission

Stonehenge is cordoned off and you have to pay for access. The sight is open 9.30am-5pm every day and costs £15.50 to visit for adults and £9.30 for children.

Had a visit here for the summer solstice, not really my cup of tea but interesting nevertheless.

Always good to visit one of the worlds best known sights but found the fact that you had to pay to see what is a natural site set in a grass area a bit strange. Also security is pretty tight and we were told off for walking in a certain area.
