At Stonehenge - Your Safety, facilities and Welfare

here to help

There are lots of stewards on duty to help with the smooth and successful running of the Open Access. They are also there to answer your questions so please do not hesitate to approach them. If you notice anything that concerns you please report it so that appropriate action can be taken.


The South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust and Wiltshire Police are in attendance.  If you, or someone you are with, need medical attention, please seek help from one of the security or stewards on duty.

If you get lost, or lose track of your friends or children, locate a member of the security or stewarding team. 

In the unlikely event of an incident that requires the evacuation of Stonehenge or the Car Park, we would ask that members of the public respond quickly to instructions given by stewarding staff, the Police or other Emergency Service personnel. 


English Heritage does everything it can to make your visit a safe and enjoyable experience.  However, English Heritage accepts no liability for any injury to persons or loss of, or damage to, property arising in any way whatsoever whilst at Stonehenge or the Car Park, and entry is at people's own risk.  Although stewards and security are present at both Stonehenge and the Car Park, please note that any people entering these areas do so at their own risk.
