Journey back in time to discover the magnificent Stonehenge, probably the most sophisticated stone circle in the world. Hourly departures from Salisbury on this big bus hop on / hop off budget transport option.
Stonehenge evolved from a simple bank and ditch in the Neolithic period, some 5,000 years ago, to a very sophisticated stone circle built on the axis of the midsummer sunrise. The bluestones were brought 240 miles from the Preseli mountains in Wales.
There are many stories about the significance of Stonehenge. It may have been an astronomical observatory or used for sacred rituals linked to the sun, successful crops or even the dead. We simply don’t know, but you can learn about them on the audio tour at the site - it’s in 10 different languages.
Although things might be a little different when you visit, you’ll still be able to enjoy exploring the places where history really happened. And you’ll still be given a warm and safe welcome by our friendly – if socially distant – staff and volunteers.
The stone circle, exhibition and visitor centre are all open for you to enjoy while keeping to social distancing rules.
Shuttle bus - The shuttle bus will be prioritised for those who need it. All visitors using the bus will be required to bring and wear a face covering.
Walking to the Stones - We’ve introduced a 2.6 mile circular route to the stones and back on unmade paths through the surrounding ancient landscape which is owned and cared for by the National Trust.
Cafe - A takeaway catering offer will be provided in our outdoor seating area or you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy near the stones.
Shop - The shop will be open and most items are also available online.
Audio guide - Free to download to your own smartphone in advance. Don’t forget your headphones!
Toilets - Our toilets are open as usual. Additional hand sanitising stations will be available across the site.
