Facilities at Stonehenge

  • Parking

    V

    Parking is available on site. During peak periods, there is a parking charge to non-members and those who have not prebooked tickets which is fully refundable on purchase of a ticket to Stonehenge.  

    A Visitor Bus service runs frequently from the visitor centre, for those who need it, and takes around 10 minutes to reach the Stones.

  • Food And Drink

    V

    Our large cafe serves a grab-and-go hot and cold food offer, including drinks, soup, pasties, sandwiches, salads and other sweet and savoury items, using locally-sourced produce, perfect for a picnic.

  • Picnic Area

    V

    You can picnic in the monument field with the view of the Stone Circle, or at other designated points around the Visitor Centre and landscape. 

  • Shop

    V

    The Stonehenge gift shop offers an extensive range of books, gifts and souvenirs, including jewellery and an exclusive range of Barbour clothing and accessories. 

     

  • Toilets

    V

    Male, female toilets, including accessible and and adult change facilities, are available at the visitor centre. 

     

  • Dogs

    V

    Assistance dogs are welcome throughout, including the Stone Circle.

    Dogs on leads are allowed around the outside of the visitor centre only - they are not permitted at the Stone Circle or in the exhibition, cafe, shop or on the visitor bus. 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. 

     

  • Exhibition

    V

    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. The exhibition 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.

  • Gardens

    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.
