Facilities at Stonehenge

  • Parking

    V

    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.

  • Food And Drink

    V

    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.

  • Shop

    V
    The gift shop offers an extensive range of books, gifts and souvenirs, many made in the UK exclusively for Stonehenge.

    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

  • Museum

    The visitor centre contains nearly 300 archaeological objects, finds from Stonehenge and other nearby monuments, now displayed on site for the first time. All the objects are on loan from Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum, Devizes. We recommend a visit to these two museums to find out more about the prehistory of the Stonehenge area.
