Owner description: One of the most important survivals of prehistoric England, Stonehenge consists of a group of huge rough-cut stones, some more than 20 feet high, arranged in two concentric circles.
Reviewed 5 May 2018

...when I was half my height, the stones seemed twice as big, the circle twice as large, I could walk right up to the stones and touch them. There weren't the facilities like there are now, nor the so called exhibition: and one didn't need a bus from the entrance to the circle; and it didn't cost the earth either. I was told the charge was high so that money could be diverted to other places -not on! Or if it is to pay for the flashy visitor centre (far more than it needs to be) that isn't either. EH need a re-think!
At half the price it would be twice as good.

Having said all that, Stonehenge is still impressive but because you can't get close you loose a sense of the real scale of the stones. Yes there are visitors around but they aren't close either. It needs some figures (dummies) within the circle to create an air of realism.

£50 for 2 adults and 1 child. A rip off . Stonhenge it self was lovely and the detailed explanation of everything was good.

The 3hr ride from London is not really worth it. The small museum and the cafe were nice additions, but the stones themselves aren't really exciting. Plus, the entry fee is too high for what you get.

This is our second visit to Stonehenge. Visited this UNESCO site in 2010. So it has changed somewhat with the opening of their interpretation centre and giftshops. Very much worth joining a tour if you are coming up from London. It is still an impressive prehistoric stone monument and good photo ops from all sides. You pretty much have to stay within the designated pathway that circles the monument. It would have been more impressive if you could have a closer view. It was a beautiful day when we visited in December but it was bloody windy and darn near froze our ears off.

Couldn’t believe the entrance fee - £21.50. We appreciate that there is a need to make a charge for the up keep but felt it was a bit steep. We walked up to the stones, 20 minutes, walked round the stones and walked back - cost NOTHING...... the charge is for the shuttle bus and to get a very slightly bit closer to the stones. Seriously for 2 adults it’s not worth paying £43 ...... enjoyed the walk and seeing the stones all for nothing.
