Things to see and do

visitor centre

This is where we tell the story of Stonehenge through our world-class exhibition featuring fascinating artefacts from the time of the Stonehenge builders, many of which are on loan from Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum , and multi-media displays. We also have a changing special exhibition space which has recently included contemporary art, photographs, Stonehenge ephemera and archaeological treasures from museums around the world.

Outside, discover the Neolithic Houses where you'll often find an English Heritage volunteer making bread to an ancient recipe over a fire, or crafting using Neolithic technologies. 

Elsewhere, you'll find a large shop and cafe with extensive visitor facilities, including a fully accessible changing room, so you can relax and make the most of your time at Stonehenge. 

We also have a large car park, and green areas for picnicking both at the stones circle, and around the visitor centre.
