Stonehenge Admission Ticket

1. Stonehenge Admission Ticket

Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous prehistoric monument in the world. It was built in several stages, beginning as a simple earthwork enclosure. The unique linteled stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period, around 2500 B.C. Your timed admission ticket gives you access to a site that has continued to attract interest for centuries. Today Stonehenge, Avebury, and other associated locations comprise a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring a unique and dense concentration of prehistoric monuments. Stonehenge has been the subject of speculation and fascination since at least the early medieval period. How did Neolithic people construct this masterpiece of engineering using only the simple tools and technologies available to them? Hundreds of prehistoric objects from the Stonehenge World Heritage Site are on display in the visitor center. One of the new features at Stonehenge is an outdoor gallery that includes several reconstructed Neolithic houses. Using archaeological evidence and authentic materials, these buildings provide a glimpse into the lifestyle of the Neolithic people who built Stonehenge. Stonehenge has many different meanings to people today. It is an icon of Britain, a wonder of the world, a spiritual place, and a source of inspiration.

2. From London: Stonehenge Half-Day Tour with Audio Guide

Explore one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world on a half-day tour to Stonehenge. Travel to the site from London by air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy views of the English landscape en route. The tour is unescorted, but visitors can download an audio guide on their smartphones. Situated on Salisbury Plain in the Wiltshire countryside, the cluster of 40-ton rocks was constructed more than 5,000 years ago.  Although the function of Stonehenge is still a matter of fierce debate, what is known about the UNESCO World Heritage Site is that it has been a site of pagan worship for centuries. Make up your own mind as you uncover the history behind the extraordinary monument. A new world-class visitor center is now a short shuttle bus ride away from the stone circle site and combines cutting-edge audiovisuals with exhibitions of ancient objects.

Le site en lui même est vraiment remarquable et unique. Excursion très bien organisée, le bus était en très bon état, l'accueil est bon. Sur place le parking des bus est à proximité des mini bus pour aller sur le site (ou à pieds) et comme les billets sont déjà prit nous pouvons y aller directement. L'audio guide est intéressant et comme il est téléchargé sur son téléphone j'ai pu revenir sur certaines explications au retour.

Well worth it. We did not want to spend an entire day on a bus to see Windsor or Bath. Out early , back in time for some sightseeing and then dinner. Seats are typical bus seats and not high;y comfortable, but they worked. Trip out and back is pretty boring except for about 30 miles around Stonehenge. Far better than driving and when you factor in the cost o admission, it is worth it. Lovely site once you are there.

It's not organized on site at all. Booked the morning tour and then had to do the afternoon tour because our bus drove away. Since the nice lady said we have to go to stop 3, but it would have been stop 1. But otherwise the tour was great. Recommended

Highly recommend. Very organized tour and 2 hours is just enough time to see the stones and the exposition. Driver was nice and overall tour has a really fair price.

Well worth a visit. Everything is well-preserved and organised. The museum tour is very informative and of course the stones themselves are amazing!
