The theories surrounding this mysterious prehistoric stone circle continue to abound. Was it a temple, a solar calendar, a site for fairs, ritual feasting or sacrifices, an observatory, a burial ground or a centre for healing? Whatever is was back then, today it is an awe-inspiring sight that draws in visitors from across the globe. 

Grab a true sense of the place by booking an out-of-hours visit with English Heritage, when you can enter the circle to see the stones at close hand. Or come on the winter or summer solstice, a time held sacred by New Age believers, for an experience found nowhere else on the planet.
