things to see and do
There’s so much more to a day out at Stonehenge than the awe-inspiring stone circle.
Discover how the Stonehenge builders lived and worked in our fascinating exhibition, ask our knowledgeable staff and volunteers your burning questions about the stones, then grab a picnic from the café to enjoy with the best view in the world!
Or book onto one of our once-in-a-lifetime Stone Circle Experiences to really make your visit unforgettable.
Welcome to Stonehenge
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 Resident Pass Holder, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance. To book your visit, click here.
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.
