Win an exclusive sunrise visit to Stonehenge

Declare your love and you could win access to the inner circle at Stonehenge, followed by a champagne breakfast

Stonehenge has been a destination for lovers, honeymooners and romantics for generations, and now it’s your chance to make the mysterious monument feature in your own love story.

Last year English Heritage was sent more than 1000 photographs of visits to Stonehenge over the last 100 years, and many of these memories had been captured while on honeymoon or romantic breaks. Some of the couples are now celebrating their 50th wedding anniversaries.

English Heritage is now launching its #LoveStonehenge competition offering one lucky couple the opportunity to be alone in the most romantic of stone circles this Valentine's Day. The winner of the competition will be given special access for two to the stone circle on the morning of 14 February, and for their moment to be captured by a professional wedding and portrait photographer.

The stone circle will be exclusively yours at sunrise, and you and your beloved will be free to stroll amongst the ancient stones, before enjoying a celebratory breakfast at the visitor centre.

Enter our competition and if you win, you'll have an amazing and unique story to tell the grandchildren. 

Simply tell us why you should be chosen for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We're looking for the most romantic stories, proposals or declarations of love in all its forms. Upload a photo or video to make your entry really stand out.
