Visit Stonehenge

Salisbury, Wiltshire

Some 5,000 years old, and partially constructed from rare bluestones found 160 miles away.


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.
