STONEHENGE BY TRAIN
The train to Stonehenge from London is a reliable and economical option. With trains running every 30 minutes during the day, it’s also a flexible way to plan your visit. There isn’t a direct train link from London to Stonehenge, the closest train station is in Salisbury, which is 9 miles from Stonehenge.
The train from London's Waterloo Station to Salisbury will take about 1.5-hours. Expect a round trip London to Stonehenge train ticket to cost around £37.00, although this price can vary depending on the day and time of your departures.
Salisbury is home to England's finest medieval Cathedral and has the best surviving copy of Magna Carta. The medieval city is well worth exploring and has a bustling charter market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We highly recommend an overnight stay in this historical city should you have the luxury of time.
