Stonehenge is one of the world's most impressive prehistoric monuments. The construction of the ditch and surrounding embankment dates to 3100 BCE, and radiocarbon dating indicates that placement of the standing stones took place between 2400 and 2200 BCE. Spend time in the visitor's center before viewing the site. The interpretive displays and exhibits here tell stories about the monument and explain the popular debates about its possible prehistoric uses. These will help give you context to appreciate its significance--though the age-old question of how the giant standing stones got there remains unanswered. The cafe by the entrance provides a place to grab snacks before you proceed to the site by shuttle bus. Buy your tickets online before visiting to avoid waiting in line at the ticket kiosk, and check the weather forecast so that you can dress appropriately.

Stonehenge is a very special place. It's definitely worth a visit, especially if you are spiritual. It's very educational. The stones are magnificent. It's an extra special place for me as I was the last child to be born amongst the stones. It's funny how I was born amongst precious stones and now I sell precious stones.
The stones are magnificent, I was shocked to see the price though, £19 per adult, for an audio guide, a small bus ride and the chance to stand near, but not get in amongst the stones. Considering they had God knows how many grants from the lottery and government to preserve this place I feel that price is massively over the top!
