It really is more than a 'pile of rocks' in a fieild! Our guide mest us at the visitor centre and walked us across the landscape giving is an inreal view of the monument. We had no idea how many neolithic sites surround the stones and the guide brought the history, astronomy, myths and legends alive. I hight recommend booking a guide if you are visiting Stonehenge for the 1st time. P.S wear some boots and take a coat if you want to makwe the most of the walk.
