Top 3 Unmissable Spots

Make sure you experience our unmissable spots when visiting Stonehenge. These make for great photos too!

1. The Avenue - view the entrance to the stone circle, and the most complete element of the monument, from the viewing point next to the footbridge to imagine the ancient people processing up the avenue and into the monument.

2. Marvel at the stones - follow the hard footpath to take you the closest to the stones and marvel at their size and majesty. This is also an ideal spot for taking pictures, and continuing your journey around the stones to see how many Bronze Age burial mounds you can spot in the surrounding landscape.

3. Inside a Neolithic house - experience life in the Neolithic and get hands on with history. Do you think you would have survived at the time of Stonehenge?
