One of the most iconic neolithic monuments in the world. The precision of the placement of the standing stones is really amazing. While you aren't allowed to get up super close and touch the stones, you still get a great view of the ring, and the walkway is at the right distance to get very good panoramic pictures of the entire ring.

Sometimes people have expressed to me that they don't see what is so special about a bunch of ancient stones laying on the ground in the countryside. I always tell them that it is different when you actually go here, see these things, and at the same time experience the rural, English atmosphere that surrounds the site. Learning about Stonehenge before visiting it only enhances these experiences, and makes one appreciate all the more the particular allure of the place.

We spent a few days in Cotswolds and had a car, so stopping at Stonehenge was in our plans. The weather was kind of rainy, with sun coming out here and there. When we approached Stonehenge, the sun was out, and seeing this amazing structure from the road was pretty impressive. We knew that we only had about 25 minutes before closing, so after parking our car, we rushed towards the Stones. The place is surrounded by a wire fence, and as we walked further and further along the fence, we realized that the entrance is somewhere else. By the time we got back to the parking lot and to the underground entrance, there were 10 minutes left for us to enter the site and leave. We decided that it wasn’t worth the money and went back to the fence. Considering, that they only let you look at the Stones from a distance (of course, closer than when you are behind the fence), it makes for a good compromise to look at Stonehenge from a hole in the wire fence. The sun came out a few times and we got to take some nice pictures of this amazing site, which is more impressive in real life than in the pictures, especially considering that it was put together about 5,000 years ago.

This is one of those "world wonders" you must visit if you are in the UK. Visit the monument first and then go to the museum/exposition nearby where they explain in detail the different building periods, the history and the most probable use of this monumentRecommended for

Went here for the solstice celebration, which is the only time when people are allowed to go inside and touch the stones, and it's free to enter. An amazing time, with a festival atmosphere that persisted despite the cold weather and persistent rain!
If it's not the festival, you have to pay to enter and can't even go into the stone circle - not worth it!
