Stonehenge poses more questions than answers, making it one of the most mysterious prehistoric monuments in the world. And because of its proximity to London, the famous landmark makes for a popular day trip from the city . Organized Stonehenge tours from London typically include round-trip transportation in an air-conditioned coach, as well as visits to other nearby landmarks, such as the Avebury stone circles, Bath or the Cotswolds.

These tours from London, evaluated by U.S. News using both expert opinion and traveler sentiment, offer some of the best ways to experience Stonehenge.

As you drive through the countryside, you'll enjoy live, in-depth commentary from your expert guide before arriving in Stonehenge. After exploring Stonehenge, you'll head to Bath to enjoy lunch and time to roam on your own or join an optional guided tour. Your final stop is a "secret" destination selected by your tour guide. Reviewers praise the knowledgeable, humorous guides and particularly recommend this tour for its small size and luxurious transportation.

You can buy entry tickets to Stonehenge on-site for about 20 to 25 pounds (around $25 to $31) depending on the time of the year when visiting or online in advance for a slight discount.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can visit Stonehenge without a tour. It is accessible to visitors year-round.

However, there are a few benefits to choosing an organized Stonehenge tour, including the commentary and knowledge tour guides are able to provide and the ease of a tour provider's transportation. Tour companies will typically pick you up in central London (usually multiple pickup points are available) and Bath and take you directly to the historical site; then provide return transportation back to the city at the conclusion of the tour.

Stonehenge is located in Salisbury, England, about 90 miles southwest of London. The train ride from the London Waterloo station to Salisbury takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes. After that, you can hop on a bus from the train station to Stonehenge, which takes about 30 minutes.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience. There were a couple of small hiccups, nothing is perfect, but our guide and our driver did a fantastic job of making the experience fun and meaningful. The only thing I would flag is that the group size is a bit large - we were 46 - which can sometimes make for slower travel. Otherwise, absolutely wonderful!

The Best Stonehenge Tours To Take in 2024 and Why

Brie Greenhalgh Last Updated: October 24, 2023

Whether it’s your first or third time to London, if you haven’t made the trek out to Stonehenge, it’s time to fix that. Booking one of the best Stonehenge tours is the perfect way to see these fascinating rocks up close without having to worry about how to get there. Plus, tours of Stonehenge from London usually include other cool stops along the way, like Windsor Castle or the Salisbury Cathedral. Find out which tour is right for you!

Pro Tip:  Planning what to do on your trip to London? Bookmark this post in your browser so you can easily find it when you’re in the city. Check out our  guide to London  for more planning resources, our  top Stonhenge tours  for a memorable trip, and  how to visit Stonehenge .

Should You Take a Tour to Stonehenge?

Short answer: Absolutely. Even if only to eliminate the hassle of arranging your own tickets and transportation to this incredible place outside of London.

Stonehenge sits about 90 miles west of London, so you’ll need a plan to get there. Most people opt for a guided tour since they won’t have to worry about driving, navigating, or obtaining their own tickets. We definitely recommend doing the same, but with a small group so you have more opportunities to get to know your guide and fellow travelers.

You’ll learn much more about Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, Avebury, West Kennet, Salisbury Cathedral, and much more if you book a day trip with a local guide. And depending on your preference, you could even book an early morning or evening entrance at Stonehenge when the general public has left. These are unique opportunities to see the Inner Circle of Stonehenge that you won’t forget!

Three of the Best Stonehenge Tours

The origins and construction of the rocks at Stonehenge are technically unknown, but there are plenty of theories and legends. Aliens, giants, Druids. Your driver-guide will share all of these as you ride along the English countryside. All of these tours include stops at Stonehenge, so you’ll just need to decide what time of day you want to visit and what other sites interest you the most.

You can opt for a self-guided tour (tickets included) at Windsor Castle or time at Avebury to see the ancient manmade mound that’s the size of an Egyptian pyramid. Or perhaps you’d love to see an original copy of the Magna Carta that shaped the future for the rights of all mankind. Check out the best Stonehenge tours below and choose what’s best for you!

  • Windsor, Stonehenge, and Bath Day Trip from London
  • Early Access Stonehenge Morning Tour from London with Inner Circle
  • After Hours Stonehenge Inner Circle Tour from London

1. Windsor, Stonehenge, and Bath Day Trip from London

stonehenge tour price

Windsor Castle

Your first stop out of London is Windsor Castle—the late Queen’s favorite residence. There are 13,000 acres here, and you’ll have tickets to enter the castle to explore the areas open to the public. This is a self-guided tour as no tour guides are allowed inside. Not to worry! Your driver-guide will have prepped you with plenty of information about what you’ll see here and why it’s such a beloved castle for the royal family.

Then you’ll head to Stonehenge where you’ll get to walk the road leading to these famous ancient ruins. Dating back some 4,000 years, these rocks have an intriguing history that is still yet to be determined. Why and how these structures were built remains a mystery, not to mention by whom. Yes, it’s just a bunch of rocks, but they’re 20-ton rocks on average, positioned perfectly in a strange circle for some purpose. It’s worth seeing in person!

While the baths at Bath were used by the ancient Celts, they weren’t beautified and built up until the Romans arrived. They are how the city came to be named, and it’s worth planning ahead to get tickets to see them. This tour offers free time in this city so you can explore whatever interests you most whether it’s the Roman baths or the Jane Austen Museum.

Highlights:

  • Round-trip transportation from London
  • Entry to Windsor Castle
  • Entry to Stonehenge during the day
  • Free time in Bath (explore or pre-book an activity)

2. Early Access Stonehenge Morning Tour from London with Inner Circle

stonehenge tour price

Early-Access Stonehenge

This tour leaves London super early so you can arrive at Stonehenge for an exclusive, early-access entry before it opens to the general public. This means you’ll visit the Inner Circle of Stonehenge around sunrise as your guide shares all we know and suspect about Stonehenge. The morning light and solitude make this an extra special experience for any early bird looking for a day trip to Stonehenge.

Salisbury Cathedral

A stop at Salisbury is up next. This historic town lays claim to two impressive things for native Britons: a cathedral with the tallest spire in England and an original copy of the Magna Carta. This document laid the foundation for human rights around the world. You’ll have time to eat lunch here and explore a little of this ancient town before heading back to London in the afternoon.

  • Exclusive, early-access to Stonehenge
  • Guided tour of Inner Circle (not available to general public)
  • Visit to Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta

Not ready to book a tour? Find out if London tours are worth it .

3. After Hours Stonehenge Inner Circle Tour from London

stonehenge tour price

Silbury Hill and West Kennet

Depart London in the mid-morning and head to Silbury Hill to see another mysterious piece of Britain’s past. A Neolithic man-made mound that’s roughly the size of an Egyptian pyramid and about 4,000 years old! And at West Kennet Long Barrow, you’ll see ancient burial grounds that date back even further about 5,000 years. That’s old!

You might not know that Avebury also has some monolithic rocks that resemble Stonehenge on a smaller scale. They’re another great stop that add to your overall “ancient ruins of Britain” experience on this Stonehenge tour from London. Plus, you’ll have free time to enjoy lunch in Avebury and explore this charming little town before moving on.

Stonehenge Inner Circle

Your last stop is what you’ve been waiting for: an after-hours entrance to Stonehenge. What you might not know is that the Inner Circle is closed to the public during the day, so you can only receive guided access here before or after the regular opening hours. That makes this sunset Stonehenge tour even more special and memorable. You’ll be mesmerized by the dwindling light in the late hours of the day as you explore Stonehenge without the crowds.

  • Visit to Silbury Hill man-made mound
  • Visit to burial grounds in West Kennet Long Barrow
  • Explore Avebury and the monoliths
  • Exclusive, after-hours access to Stonehenge
  • Guided tour of the Inner Circle

The inside story

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England and is one of the most famous landmarks in the United Kingdom. It consists of a ring of standing stones , each around 13 feet high and seven feet wide. Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC but there are no written records, and historians have never agreed how or why it was built. Some believe it was a giant clock to measure the summer and winter solstices. Others believe it was a burial ground or healing place.

One of the main mysteries is how the ancient builders moved such huge stones to the area before the invention of the wheel. Some theories suggest that they rolled them on logs or dragged them on sleds whereas geologists suggest that glaciers could have carried them from far away and dropped them near to the site.

Less scientifically, Stonehenge has long been associated with some weird and wonderful theories. Were they placed there by supernatural methods? Is it a launch pad for alien spacecrafts? Enjoy being captured by the history of this ancient spectacle as you discover the mystery surrounding this perplexing marvel.

The site has a visitor center nearby and features a museum with over 300 archaeological items, as well as a gift shop, café, and picnic area. Situated in the south of England, you can easily travel to Stonehenge by bus, car or train from London. Many visitors combine their visit to Stonehenge with a day trip to nearby Windsor and/or Bath.

Stonehenge is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated in the county of Wiltshire in England close to the cathedral city of Salisbury .

A trip to Stonehenge features high on many bucket lists for visitors to the UK (and with Brits themselves) and approximately 800,000 people choose to visit Stonehenge each year.

To ensure you make the best of your visit you will find practical information, advice and tips in this article to help you plan your trip. This includes information about how to get to Stonehenge by car or train plus a curated list of the best day tour options to Stonehenge from London.

Stonehenge is the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe . The stones were raised 4500 years ago as an ancient temple by prehistoric people.

2018 was the hundredth anniversary of the gifting of Stonehenge to the nation by local barrister Cecil Chubb and his wife Mary. Before this date the stones had fallen into disrepair with some of them even propped up by wooden poles. Since 1918 the stones have been cared for and are now looked after by English Heritage for the benefit of the nation.

Whilst the stones which comprise Stonehenge were set up around 2500 BC the actual monument complex dates back between 8500 and 7000 years BC.

It is believed that most of England was covered in trees and woodland while the area around Stonehenge was an open landscape and this is a possible reason why the area was chosen.

ARRIVING AT STONEHENGE – THE VISITOR’S CENTRE

When you are visiting Stonehenge you will arrive at the visitor’s centre as your first port of call. The visitor’s centre is located 2.1 km (1.5 miles) from the Stone Circle, at Airman’s Corner.

The visitor centre at Stonehenge.

The visitor’s centre at Stonehenge consists of an exhibition, a café and a gift shop as well as an outdoor gallery where the reconstructed Neolithic houses can be found.  The exhibition is very good we spent quite some time reading and learning more about Stonehenge and the surrounding area.

Outside the centre are reconstructed Neolithic houses. You can enter the houses and gain some insight into how people lived 4500 years ago.

There is also an example of the stones used to construct Stonehenge so you can get an idea of the sheer size. Can you imagine dragging this across the English countryside from Wales?

Example of a stone strapped to logs at Stonehenge.

To get to the stones you need to hop onto one of the free shuttle buses which leave from the visitor’s centre. The bus ride takes approximately 10 minutes. Buses leave every few minutes so don’t worry if you miss one as there will be another leaving soon after.

Download the free audio guide from the app store before you arrive or pick up an audio guide at the visitor’s centre for a small fee.

The surrounding landscape is full of barrows – Bronze Age burial mounds. And standing at Stonehenge you really get a sense of how it looked during prehistoric times. During the summer solstice, the sun rises behind the heel stone and its rays shine into the heart of Stonehenge.

The stones used in Stonehenge comprise of larger sarsens and smaller bluestones. While the sarsens make up an inner horseshoes and and outer circle the bluestones are set up between them and form a double arc.

The larger sarsen stones are made from hard silicified sandstone whilst the smaller bluestones are made from various types of rock all found in the Preseli Hills in south-west Wales.

The heel stone at Stonehenge.

The large upright stone which can be seen standing at the side of the Stone Circle is called the heel stone. Its significance becomes apparent during the summer solstice where it marks the position of the rising sun.

PRACTICAL THINGS TO KNOW FOR YOUR STONEHENGE VISIT

I highly recommend that you plan your visit and book your tickets in advance.

Stonehenge is a major tourist attraction and is always busy whenever you visit even in winter. The stones are particularly busy during the summer solstice on June 20/21st and the winter solstice in December. At these times the stones are only open on a managed access basis. The alignment of the stones on the longest and shortest days attracts thousands of visitors and it is the only time you can go into the stone circle itself.

Entrance to Stonehenge is managed through timed tickets. If you want to guarantee entry on the day and time of your choice then you will have to pre-book tickets or book a tour.

Skip-the-queue tickets can be purchased through Get Your Guide (my tour operator of choice) and are highly recommended if you want to avoid crowds and queues.

Entry is free to members of English Heritage and members of the National Trust in England or those who hold a National Trust Touring Pass only though you still need to book your time slot.

If you are visiting from overseas and want to visit Stonehenge independently and are intending to visit more English Heritage owned properties I would recommend buying an English Heritage Attractions Pass .

This pass is only available to visitors from overseas. The pass entitles holders to free entry to over 100 English Heritage sites including Stonehenge, Dover Castle, Hadrian’s Wall and Tintagel Castle.

When is the best time to visit Stonehenge?

I would recommend avoiding the solstices when Stonehenge is very busy. The summer months can also be a little challenging as those are peak holiday times for UK residents too (school holidays in England start mid July until the first week of September) Winter is darker, colder and quieter and you will need to wrap up warmly when you visit. 

When is the best time of day to visit Stonehenge?

I would recommend as early in the day as possible as the roads around Stonehenge can become gridlocked, particularly during the busy summer months. In winter it is dark around 4 pm so it is best to see the stones in the morning if you can.

Stonehenge visiting hours are 9:30 – 3:00 during the winter months and 9:30 – 5:00 over the spring/summer/autumn months. The last entry is 2 hours before closing time (so if you book a ticket for 3 pm in the winter Stonehenge closes at 5 pm)

How close can you get to the stones?

People often ask how close can you get to Stonehenge or if you can walk up to Stonehenge. The only time visitors are allowed in the circle is during the summer and winter solstice celebrations.

At all times visitors can walk around the stone circle. If you would rather walk up to Stonehenge from the visitor’s centre it is about a 40-minute walk.

Wiltshire County Council also has a  guide to travelling to Stonehenge which includes walking and cycling routes.

I would recommend checking out the weather forecast the day before your visit so you can dress appropriately.  Stonehenge is open air so wrap up warmly in winter and bring an umbrella if rain is on the horizon. If you are unsure of what to pack for your trip to the UK and Stonehenge you may like to read my packing list for the UK . 

Please note that dogs are not allowed in the Stone Circle Monument Field or on the shuttle bus (unless they are assistance dogs)

After viewing the stones catch the bus back to the visitor’s centre. If you are keen to purchase souvenirs of your visit you can find lots of Stonehenge gifts and merchandise in the Stonehenge gift shop in the centre.

HOW TO VISIT STONEHENGE FROM LONDON – BY CAR, TRAIN OR TOUR

There are several options available if you plan to visit Stonehenge from London .

Stonehenge is 145 km from London via the M3/A303 and A360. Come off the A360 at Airman’s Corner. 

If you are visiting during the summer allow plenty of time as the roads can become very busy around Stonehenge.

If you are visiting Stonehenge by car you will find parking is free for English Heritage members and Stonehenge ticket holders.

Included in the Stonehenge exhibition is a reconstruction of neolithic houses that are designed to look exactly as they would have back when this tourist attraction was first created.

Booking tickets in advance is strongly recommended, particularly in the high season.

Entrance is timed, so there is a limit to how many tickets are available each day. 

But, before you pay full price - check out the offers we've listed below.

In addition to those limitations, these inner circle tickets are only offered with certain specially organized Stonehenge day trips from Premium Tours and Evan Evans Tours.

These Stonehenge tours usually include additional attractions such as Oxford, Bath, or Windsor, and you can expect your outing to last all day. Due to limited availability, you should plan on purchasing your tickets well ahead of time.

Purchase Inner Circle Tickets or learn more .

What to Expect at Stonehenge

If you're wondering what a trip to Stonehenge will look like, this section will answer some of the most common questions about visiting the landmark.

Can you visit Stonehenge on your own?

Yes, you can! You don't need to visit with a tour group.

It is possible to drive here on your own if you have access to a car, and you can purchase tickets upon arrival.

How much time do you need at Stonehenge?

English Heritage recommends you set aside at least 2.5 hours, but depending on how much you plan to do and see, you might spend even less time here.

For instance, if you're not planning to visit the café or gift shop, and you don't want to spend much time at the Stonehenge visitor centre, you probably won't need to set aside as much time for this activity.

Can you walk around the stones at Stonehenge?

Yes! You can get pretty close to the stones using a special access/inner circle ticket .

Visitors will also typically get quite close during the Summer Solstice event .

Can you visit Stonehenge for free?

Yes! There are several ways to visit Stonehenge without paying for a ticket .

That said, unless you want to walk for a while, it'll be much easier to just pay for admission.

11 Ways to Get Concessionary Tickets for Stonehenge

In this section, we will go over all of the different ways you can either save money on Stonehenge tickets or get free admission.

1. Get a Heritage Pass

This tourist pass provides admission to several UNESCO World Heritage sites in the country – including Stonehenge. 

If you’re planning to visit several historic landmarks in England, this could be a great way to save money on tickets.

Unlike other passes, this service is specifically designed to cover admission costs at historic locations, so there aren’t any other activities or services like the London Eye or Madame Tussauds included.

English Heritage Pass Site Locations

That said, with more than 100 sites included, it’s easy to see how this could save you a lot of money on tickets to some of the most popular destinations in the entire country.

This pass is available for either 9 days or 16 days.

Individual Pass Prices

  • 9-Day Pass: £38 per person
  • 16-Day Pass: £45 per person

2 Adult Pass Prices

  • 9-Day Pass: £66 (£33 per person)
  • 16-Day Pass: £76 (£38 per person)

Family Pass Prices (2 Adults + 4 Kids)

  • 9-Day Family Pass: £75 
  • 16-Day Family Pass: £86

If you plan on visiting at least 3-4 different heritage sites, this pass could easily pay for itself in no time. 

Travelers who want to visit even more than 4 locations will likely save a lot of money on general admission prices.

Purchase the Heritage Pass or learn more .

2. Use a Different Tourist Pass

In addition to the Heritage Pass, you can also get concessions on Stonehenge tickets by using other London tourist passes. 

Most of the deals opportunities offered by these services are actually organized tours and day trips from London which include admission to Stonehenge in the ticket price.

These tourist concession passes allow you to pay one flat price for a set number of attractions or days in which you can use the pass.

Some tourist passes also give you a specific offer (usually 20% off) for these activities.

NOTE: Stonehenge is currently not included with any tourist passes as of April 2024, but that will probably change in the future.

For more details about these options, make sure to read our full post covering which London tourist pass is best .

Alternatively, if you want to learn more about day trips from London, read our section about organized Stonehenge tours .

3. Visit Stonehenge for Free

Essentially, Stonehenge is on a heritage trail and the trail doesn’t cost anything to access.

You can get pretty close to the site without paying anything.

You won’t get access to the museum/visitor center and you will be approximately 10 meters farther back from the site than the paid visitors, but you will still be quite close.

For additional details and a map to help you find your way to the site, make sure to read our post about how to visit Stonehenge for free .

If you are travelling from London by public bus or train to Salisbury Station, you can take the Stonehenge bus from there to the carpark on site.

4. Walk from Woodhenge to Stonehenge for Free

If you have a car and either want to avoid paying £5 to park or you would like a unique experience where you can see additional historic sites, then consider this walk.

The National Trust offers a free car park at Woodhenge, another historic landmark in the area. 

Unlike some other heritage sites, this location on Salisbury Plain is actually free to visit, and it’s fairly close to Stonehenge although it requires a bit of a hike.

If you’re interested in getting some exercise, there is a path to Stonehenge that will take anywhere from 60-90 minutes to walk. 

This walk will bring you to the same viewing location as mentioned in the option above.

For more details and a full map describing how to get there, read our post on how to visit Stonehenge for free.

5. Visit During Summer Solstice

Given the history of Stonehenge and its most probable purpose, there is a special event held every June during the Summer Solstice.

During this time period, admission is free and you can actually stay overnight!

For more details, please read our post about how to visit Stonehenge for free .

6. Get an English Heritage Membership

There are a few additional ways to save money on tickets to Stonehenge. 

One of the best opportunities is to get an English Heritage Membership .

While this is aimed at people who live in England, it’s a pretty affordable alternative to general admission prices, and it’s also available to people living outside of the country.

A monthly membership will only set you back £5.33, and admission to Stonehenge is included for free. This means you would save £14 on a standard ticket. 

That said, in order to apply for this service, you must agree to purchase at least a 1-year membership.

You can cancel your membership at the end of the year, but you’ll pay £5.33 per month (£64 annually) for 12 months.

Needless to say, you’ll get the best value out of this service if you actually live in England, as you’ll have more opportunities to visit heritage sites.

If you’re only going to be there for a week or two, consider a heritage pass instead.

7. Use Promo Sites

Alternatively, you can also check sites such as Groupon or Discount London for offers on organized Stonehenge tours and other ways to visit the landmark.

8. Enjoy Deals for Children

If you're bringing kids between the ages of 5-17, tickets will be £9.30 less than general admission.

All children under the age of 5 are eligible for free entry.

9. Take Advantage of Family Ticket Offers

Buying a family ticket is an excellent way to save money if you're coming with at least 1 adult and up to 3 children. 

Prices for the family ticket w/ 2 adults are £60.60. If you were to buy the tickets individually, that would be 2 adult tickets (£46.60) and 3 children's tickets (£42.00) for a total of £88.60!

Using the family ticket, you'll save £28.

With 1 adult, the family ticket is just £37.30. If you do the math, you'll find this option can save you £28 as well!

10. Get Concession Tickets

This ticket pricing option is available for seniors over the age of 65 and students with an NUS card.

If you're eligible, this type of ticket will be £2.30 off!

11. Ask for Group Offers

If you're planning to visit Stonehenge with 11 or more people, you could qualify for a group offer.

You'll have to purchase tickets directly from English Heritage and call to request this opportunity.

ORGANIZED STONEHENGE TOURS

One of the easiest and most affordable ways to see Stonehenge is by taking an organized tour from London.

These day trips include transportation to and from the landmark by coach (tour buses), as well as admission to the museum and viewing area.

stonehenge tour price

Organized Stonehenge tours are very economical because they take you straight to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and you don’t have to worry about admission costs.

There are no trains or shuttle buses from London that will take you directly to Stonehenge.

As a result, you have to make a transfer to Salisbury, which can take a lot more time than just going straight to the landmark.

In other words, if you’re short on time, an organized Stonehenge tour bus could be one of the best ways to get there.

The only other quick alternative is driving there, and then you have to worry about parking and tickets.

London Travel Tips and Hacks

At an average price of £55-£60 per day trip from London, these tours are usually a little cheaper than taking the train.

And they’re close to the same price as driving or taking a bus when factoring in the cost of tickets.

There are also combo packages which include day trips to sites such as Windsor Castle, Oxford, and the Roman Baths. These services are typically closer to £100 per person, but they also usually include admission to the additional sites that you will visit!

If you’re interested in this option, make sure to read our full post covering Organized Stonehenge tours from London.

Journey Through Time: A Tour To Stonehenge From London For History Enthusiasts

Have you ever dreamt of walking amongst the giants of history, of unraveling the mysteries whispered by ancient stones?

A trip to Stonehenge from London offers history enthusiasts exactly that: a chance to stand before a monument that has transcended millennia, a testament to a civilization shrouded in time.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the allure of Stonehenge, its historical significance, and the practicalities of planning your own unforgettable visit to London.

We’ll explore the best times to visit, different travel options, and the essentials you’ll need to pack for this unique adventure.

And for those who crave an even deeper connection, we’ll explore special access tours and nearby historical sites that enrich the Stonehenge experience.

So, stick with us to the end!

Significance of Stonehenge: Unraveling the Mystery

Stonehenge’s origins are as fascinating as they are shrouded in uncertainty. Archaeologists estimate its construction began around 3000 BC and continued for nearly 2000 years. The sheer scale of the undertaking is astounding.

These massive sarsen stones, weighing up to 25 tons each, were transported from over 20 miles away. How this feat was achieved remains a subject of much debate.

Beyond its physical presence, Stonehenge held immense cultural significance.

It served as a focal point for rituals and ceremonies for millennia. Theories abound on its purpose: a celestial calendar, a temple dedicated to sun worship, or even a burial ground for the elite.

Each theory adds another layer of intrigue to this remarkable monument.

Planning Your Trip: A Guide for History Buffs

To maximize your experience, a little pre-planning goes a long way. So, continue reading below:-

1. Best Times to Visit

Stonehenge’s popularity fluctuates throughout the year. Here’s a quick guide to choosing the ideal time for your visit:

Tranquil Exploration: For a serene experience with fewer crowds, aim for the shoulder seasons – spring (April-May) or fall (October-November).

Winter Solstice Spectacle: Witness the awe-inspiring sunrise over Stonehenge on the winter solstice (around December 21st). However, tickets for this limited-access event sell out very quickly, so advanced booking is essential.

Pleasant Weather: Summer (June-August) offers the most pleasant weather but also brings peak crowds. Prepare for potentially longer wait times and busier viewing areas.

2. Getting There

Reaching Stonehenge from London is a breeze, with options catering to different preferences and budgets. Consider guided Stonehenge tours from london for a hassle-free experience.

These tours typically include comfortable transportation by coach, entrance fees to the monument, and the invaluable expertise of a knowledgeable guide who can share fascinating insights about Stonehenge throughout the journey.

These guides often provide commentary through a personal audio headset, allowing you to explore the site at your own pace while receiving insightful information about the monument’s history and significance.

For the independent traveler, public transportation offers a cost-effective option.

Trains run from London Waterloo Station to Salisbury, the nearest major city to Stonehenge. From there, you can connect with a dedicated Stonehenge tour bus or grab a taxi for the final leg of your journey.

Remember to factor in potential connection times and plan accordingly.

Finally, renting a car offers the ultimate flexibility. Take the scenic route, stopping at charming villages along the way, and enjoy the freedom to explore the surrounding area at your own pace. Just be sure to factor in parking fees at the Stonehenge visitor center.

3. What to Bring

To ensure a comfortable and enriching experience, pack these essentials:

Comfortable Walking Shoes: The path around Stonehenge is well-maintained but involves walking on uneven ground. Choose sturdy shoes with a good grip for navigating the terrain.

Weatherproof Gear: English weather can be unpredictable. Pack a waterproof jacket or poncho to shield yourself from sudden showers.

Sun Protection: Even on cloudy days, the sun can be strong. Bring sunscreen and a hat to prevent sunburn.

Snacks: While limited food options are available near Stonehenge, you can bring your own snacks if you prefer. Opt for lightweight, energy-boosting options like granola bars, nuts, or fruits.

Camera: Capture the awe-inspiring sight of Stonehenge for posterity. Consider bringing a camera with a good zoom lens to capture details of the stones from afar.

Remember, avoid bringing bulky items or anything that could damage the monument or the surrounding landscape. By packing smartly, you can maximize your enjoyment of this historical landmark.

Beyond Stonehenge: Exploring Nearby Historical Sites

Don’t limit your journey to just this iconic monument. Here are a few captivating historical sites that deserve a spot on your itinerary:

1. Avebury Henge

This remarkable prehistoric site in Wiltshire, England, is larger and older than the more famous Stonehenge. This massive Neolithic monument , dating back to around 2500 BC, consists of a large circular stone circle surrounding a village, making it unique.

Unlike Stonehenge, visitors can walk among the stones, touching and feeling their ancient energy. The site is part of a wider landscape of ceremonial monuments, including burial mounds and other henges.

Avebury offers a deeply atmospheric and intimate experience, inviting you to wander through its stones and explore the mysteries of Britain’s prehistoric past in a way that’s not possible at its more famous counterpart.

2. Salisbury Cathedral

It is standing majestically in the heart of Salisbury, England, and is a testament to the ingenuity and devotion of medieval architecture. Constructed in the 13th century, it has the most impressive church spire in the United Kingdom, rising 123 meters (404 feet) to the top.

This architectural marvel is not just about its impressive facade; inside, it houses one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta, a cornerstone document in the history of democracy.

Visitors are captivated by the cathedral’s stunning stained glass windows, which illuminate the interior with vibrant colors, and its ancient clock, which is considered one of the oldest working mechanical clocks in the world.

Surrounded by a tranquil Close, Salisbury Cathedral offers a peaceful retreat as well as a rich historical journey, making it a must-visit for those interested in history, architecture, or spirituality.

3. Old Sarum

Old Sarum, located in Wiltshire, England, is an ancient settlement that combines centuries of history in one fascinating site. This Iron Age hillfort was later transformed by the Romans, Saxons, and Normans, each leaving their mark.

It’s known for the ruins of a castle, a cathedral, and an old town, offering a tangible link to England’s medieval past. Perched on a hill, Old Sarum provides stunning views of the surrounding countryside, making it a historical treasure and a scenic spot.

The site encapsulates over 2,000 years of human endeavor, from its strategic military origins to its role in early English governance.

Today, visitors can explore the remnants of this once-thriving community, walking through the ruins and imagining life as it once was.

Old Sarum invites you to step back in time and experience the layered history of this remarkable place.

A tour to Stonehenge from London is more than just a sightseeing expedition; it’s a journey through time. It allows you to step outside the confines of the present and connect with the echoes of a forgotten past.

Stonehenge Attractions & Landmarks Guide

For centuries this unique, man-made, stone circle on the Salisbury plains has confounded archaeologists and historians alike. The purpose behind the stones and their formation has been speculated over and over, but the mystery is part of what draws thousands of tourists a year. For festival goers, Stonehenge hosts one of the most popular Summer Solstice celebrations in the world.

Where is Stonehenge?

The prehistoric monument of Stonehenge is situated in Wiltshire, England, on Salisbury Plain, 8 miles north of Salisbury, and 2 miles west of Amesbury. According to historical evidence, this site has been evolved over a time of more than ten millenniums.

The present form of Stonehenge is about 5 thousand years old and was a part of an enormous stone monument, which was more than 15 times larger than the present Stonehenge. Large stones are about 30 feet tall with 25 tons of weight and are called sarsens. Smaller blue stones are called bluestones and weigh only 4 tons, believed to be brought from various sites of western Wales.

Why is Stonehenge famous?

Stonehenge can be regarded as the most famous historical monument in England. Hundreds of tourists have been visiting Stonehenge every year for decades. One of the reasons for its popularity is its unique archeological structure. The mystery related to its historical origin also makes people interested to know about it.

The question is still there about the construction.

How did the ancient people manage to get all these heavy stones here at one point from their original location, hundreds of miles away, and then arranged them in this geometrical manner such that even today, the mid-summer sun touches the altar stone.

This monument is one of the most sophisticated ancient architectural structures of the world with a lintel led stone circle. The erected stones interlock very precisely in an unobtrusive manner and are dressed with some special ancient techniques.

Who built Stonehenge?

The construction of this historical monument is still a puzzle for archeologists. Most of them agree that this used to be a burial ground hundreds of years back, but how that ancient civilization without modern technology and even without wheels, built such mighty monument with huge stones is still a mystery.

There are various theories about the construction and originality of the monument. Most famous is the version of Geoffrey of Monmouth, a famous 12th-century writer, who described the tale of King Arthur and English history's mythical account that was considered to be factual work during the middle ages.

According to him, the construction of Stonehenge is the magical work of the wizard Merlin from the fifth-century. When Saxons slaughtered hundreds of British nobles that were buried on Salisbury Plain, the King Aureoles Ambrosias sent his army to Ireland to retrieve Giant's Ring, a stone circle that was believed to be built of magical African bluestones.

He wanted to build a monument for the descendants with those stones. The soldiers defeated the Irish but were unable to move those stones. Then Merlin used his powers to bring them from across the sea, arranging them in this pattern above the mass grave.

This story was believed to be true for centuries until the 17th century when John Aubrey, an archaeologist, claimed Stonehenge to be the work of Druids, the Celtic high priests, who used the place for sacrificial ceremonies. Dr. William Stukeley also supported this theory and worked a lot to popularize the theory.

Till today, people identified who are identified to be the modern Druids come here for the summer solstice. However, this theory was rejected in the mid-20th century when the radiocarbon dating 'demonstrated' it to be more than 1,000 years old when Celts came into this region.

Most of the archeologists now agree on the theory that different tribes built Stonehenge at different times, dating back to as old as 3000 BC. It is believed that Neolithic agrarians built the first structure. Various types of bones, tools, and other artifacts got from here strongly support the hypothesis.

Best time of year to see Stonehenge

The ancient monument is a year-round destination with changing England weather. However, if you are thinking of visiting Stonehenge, then consider going during autumn or springtime. The most pleasant time is during the summer months, June to September, but it is also the busiest time.

If you plan to visit during the bustling summertime, then choose the early morning time right after the place is open, or near closing time. The two solstice sunrises, on June 21st and December 21st, are the busiest times of the year, when the place is filled with thousands of people from all around the world.

Autumn and spring are relatively better as they have the warm sun, and the crowds are less than in the summer. If you don't mind the freezing winter of England and the unexpected rain, then you can plan to visit during winter so that you can avoid the huge crowds and have the place all to yourself.

The number of people visiting Stonehenge varies according to the time of the day. If you want to have fewer people to have a clear view of the place, go their first thing in the morning or at the end of the day when people are heading back to their home. Many people come here to see the beautiful sun setting behind the enormous stones.

Getting to Stonehenge

Stonehenge is located about 87 miles from the main city of London , and most of the people plan their trip to the stone monument from there. There are several ways to cover this distance to come to this historical site. You can either book a guided bus tour or drive your own car, which would be the most convenient method as it will also let you stop and visit some other important points on the way.

The distance can be covered in about 2.5 hours easily as the road is fine between the two points. You can also take a bus to go to the site directly, but that will not stop on the way. The train is a faster option but will leave you in the main city Salisbury that is at about 10 miles of distance from the main point. From here, you will have to take the Stonehenge bus or a taxi to reach your destination.

Popular destinations and activities near Stonehenge

Stonehenge doesn't take a whole day to explore. So, here is a list of popular activities and places near Stonehenge that you could enjoy and make your day memorable.

1. Salisbury Cathedral

Built-in the typical English style, this cathedral is one of the most visited religious sites in England. Built-in the 13th century, it has an interior with bright colored limestone and gleaming dark Purbeck marble.

The chimes of the 14th-century faceless clock can be heard in the church’s triforium. Many tombstones elaborate, stained glass windows, octagonal chapterhouse, and Gothic cloister, all made it a popular tourist destination. Climb up the 404 feet tower that is undoubtedly one of the tallest church spires of the country.

2. Old City Center

Wandering through the 'quaint' streets of the Old City Center is one of the best activities to do in Salisbury. You can have a great shopping experience in the area full of the amazing architecture of medieval times to the 19th century. St. Thomas of Canterbury, Poultry Cross, Joiner's Hall, Guildhall, and Plume of Feathers Inn are some of the highlights.

You can also get a guided tour throughout the old city center. The amazing 1820s facade and beautiful inner courtyard of the Red Lion Hotel also include it on the list. You can have a fantastic view of meadows of the River Avon from the North gate.

3. The Salisbury Museum

Situated in the King's House, a building used to entertain King James I of England in 1610 and 1613, the museum has an extensive collection of local archeology. The display cover has a wide variety of unique collections related to Stonehenge, Old Sarum, and other sites. Except for the permanent displays, various special exhibitions are going on around the year related to the history and art of England and Wiltshire.

4. The Wardrobe

The elegant ancient building dates back to the 13th century and is home to the award-winning Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum. The museum covers the county's regimental history and also tells about the story of soldiers from 250 years ago.

Nearby are the beautiful gardens that will lead you to the River Avon and its stunning Water Meadows. Get into the traditional on-site tearoom to enjoy your afternoon.

5. Larmer Tree Gardens

These gardens were made in 1880 by Lieutenant-General Augustus Henry Lane Fox Pitt Rivers for public enlightenment and entertainment. They are the first-ever privately owned gardens opened in the UK for public enjoyment with free entry.

There is a Roman Temple, some native Indian buildings, and one open-air theater on this 11-acre wide land. Inhabited by peacocks, pheasants, and other beautiful birds, the gardens are a famous picnic destination as well as a popular wedding venue.

6. The Wilton House

The fascinating building is a Baroque-style masterpiece with portraits of van Dyck, Charles I, Queen Henrietta Maria, and their children. Most famous is the enormous double cube room that is decorated with gold-painted garlands of fruits and flowers and a colorfully painted ceiling.

The single cubic room is also very fascinating with painted ceilings. Surrounding the house is a huge park with beautiful old trees and various exciting trails waiting to be explored.
