See the Historic Majesty of Stonehenge

Stonehenge, Wiltshire

Explore the history and mystery of Stonehenge for a cultural break, and step into a prehistoric world.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument of unique importance and forms part of an UNESCO World Heritage Site with Avebury. Its orientation on the rising and setting sun is one of its outstanding features, but why it was built this way remains a mystery.

Outstanding exhibition spaces at the Stonehenge visitor centre explain the stone circle’s historic context. Head into the Neolithic Houses, reconstructed using traditional materials and explore the wider landscape, home to numerous other ancient structures including burial chambers and long barrows. If you have the opportunity, visit at dawn or dusk for an inner circle tour, for a truly mystical experience without the crowds.

In addition to a visit to Stonehenge see more artefacts from the ancient landscape at the Salisbury Museum and the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes. There are plenty of places to stay close to Stonehenge so why not make a break of it?
