Parking is available on site. This is free to English Heritage members and Stonehenge ticket holders. A parking ticket is required if you are not visiting Stonehenge itself. Tickets cost £5 and can be bought from ticket kiosks on site. Please note that during peak times the car park is managed by stewards and tickets (cash only) are issued upon entry to the car park. Download a map of the road access and parking. A Visitor Shuttle service operates frequently from outside the shop. No need to pre-book. Takes 10 minutes to reach the Stones. Shuttles stop at Fargo Plantation (about halfway to the Stones) so that visitors can walk part of the way if they wish.
A 110-seater counter service café serves a grab and go hot and cold food offer, including drinks, soup, pasties, sandwiches, salads and other sweet and savoury items, using regionally-sourced produce. You can choose to sit inside or outside, enjoying lovely views to the west, or take something away for your onward journey.
Assistance dogs welcome throughout. Dogs on leads allowed around the outside of the visitor centre. Only assistance dogs are permitted in the monument field and on the shuttle buses. The National Trust has recently created dog free zones in all fields that are grazed by sheep in the Stonehenge landscape where there is permissive access. Please note: Assistance dogs only at Stone Circle
Discover the story of Stonehenge: the stones, the landscape, the people and its meaning, through a powerful combination of cutting-edge audio-visual experiences and incredible ancient objects.
No formal gardens, but there is a choice of walking routes available within the World Heritage site, which are suitable for a range of ages and abilities. If choosing to walk along the road, please stay within the designated walking path at all times.
