What you need to know

We've made some changes to help keep you safe and as we respond to government guidelines there may be further updates. Here's everything you need to know right now but please check back before you visit.

  • Do we need to Book?

    Advance booking is now essential. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member or Local Residents Pass holder, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance. Make sure you've read our ticketing FAQ before you book.

    Booking FAQs

  • Is any part of the site closed?

    Yes. While our shop is open with safety measures in place, all other indoor areas, including the exhibition and cafe, will remain closed in line with government guildeines until 16 May. We have take-away food and drink available.

  • Visiting after 16 May

    Stonehenge's interior spaces will open on 17 May, in line with government guidelines. At Stonehenge this includes our world-class exhibition which tells the story of Stonehenge and its builders.

    The cafe is already open, but you will now have the option of indoor and outdoor seating; we'll also continue to offer takeaway. Stonehenge's shop will also be open, as usual.

    Face coverings are required within all of our interior spaces.

    We have additional Covid-secure measures in place including social distancing, enhanced cleaning and limits on visitor numbers.


  • What changes have you made to your facilities?

    The Stonehenge stone circle is open, as is our shop, however all indoor areas will remain closed for the time being, including the exhibition and cafe. 

    We’ve introduced a 2.6 mile circular route to the stones and back on unmade paths through the surrounding ancient landscape which is owned and cared for by the National Trust. There is also a shuttle bus for those who would like to use it.

    While our cafe is closed, we're still able to offer take-away options.

    The audioguide handsets are not available at the moment but you can download our new audio tour free to your smartphone. Remember to bring your headphones!

    Plan your Visit

  • What are you doing to keep us safe?

    We've made a number of changes to help keep you safe. Although things might be a little different when you visit, you’ll still be able to enjoy exploring the places where history really happened. And you’ll still be given a warm and safe welcome by our friendly – if socially distant – staff and volunteers.

    You can visit our reopening page for information on general safety measures we've taken to help keep you safe.
