How to get here
Stonehenge is easy to get to. You can take the train to Salisbury train station and then take The Stonehenge Tour bus. You can also take a day trip by bus from London or Bath; it's around 2 ½ hours from London and around an hour from Bath.
Go to our Directions page for parking information and a post code for sat navs. Leave plenty of time at peak summer weekends when roads into the West Country can be busy.
Wiltshire County Council also has a guide to travelling to Stonehenge that includes walking and cycling routes, as well as buses and trains.

The visits take place outside of our normal general admission opening hours and are subject to very limited availability.
Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the site. Dogs on leads are welcome outside the visitor centre and in the National Trust fields that surround Stonehenge.
Dogs are not allowed in the Monument Field in which the Stone Circle sits. Nor are they allowed on the shuttle bus from the visitor centre.
The countryside is open access and very popular with walkers and dog-walkers alike. However, as there is abundant wildlife and grazing livestock, please keep dogs on leads and help to keep the Stonehenge landscape lovely by clearing up after your dog.
Water is available for dogs on request.
