Traditionally a monarch and his courtiers petrified by a witch, the Rollright Stones consist of three groups: the King's Men stone circle; the Whispering Knights burial chamber; and the single King Stone. They span nearly 2,000 years of Neolithic and Bronze Age development.
Before You Go
Acccess: The stones are located on Rollright Road along the Oxford/Warwickshire boundary between the A44 and A3400. There is parking space for several vehicles in a lay-by on Rollright Road, from which a level path leads to the stone circle. Entrance to the path is via a kissing gate.
Parking: There is limited parking in the lay-by on Rollright Road. The stones are linked to a network of public rights of way and permissive paths if you'd like to make your visit part of a longer walk.
Facilities: Wyatts garden centre is approximately 1 mile east of the stones and has a cafe and toilets. The nearest pubs and restaurants are the Greedy Goose at Chastleton and the Red Lion at Long Compton.
Learning: School groups can be accommodated by the Rollright Trust. They request that contact is made to plan a group visit at least 3 weeks in advance to plan activities and to ensure no other events are taking place.
Please be aware: English Heritage does not permit drone flying from or over sites in our care, except by contractors or partners undertaking flights for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and permissions, and are operating under controlled conditions.
Please do not sit or climb on the stones.
