On arrival you will be directed by your Stone Circle Experience host to the shuttle bus for the short journey to the stones. 

Once you arrive at the stones, you’re free to wander amongst them for approximately 45 minutes, discovering all the fascinating details on these mighty sarsens and bluestones that are only visible up close, with your knowledgeable host on hand to answer any questions you may have. While you're in the stone circle you can take as many photos as you like, or just marvel at their majesty, we only ask that you don’t stand on or touch the stones.  

Please make sure you are ready to board the shuttle bus to the monument from the visitor centre 10 minutes before your Stone Circle Experience session start time.
