On arrival you will be directed by your Stone Circle Experience host to the shuttle bus for the short journey to the stones. Please remember to bring and wear a face covering.

Once you arrive at the stones, you’re free to wander amongst them 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.  

If your visit is in the morning the exhibition will be open from 9.30am. If your visit is after general admission visits close at 5pm you are welcome on site from 4pm to explore the visitor centre. The exhibition, shop and café close at 5pm. Please note that limited capacities are in place due to social distancing requirements so queuing may be necessary and face coverings must be worn.

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.

To keep everyone safe, we have reduced the number of people within the stone circle at any one time so where a group is more than 15 people the group will be divided into two with 30 minutes within the stone circle itself and 30 minutes around it. This will be managed by your host.
