    If you going from Reading-Pewsey on train, don't mind the map that refers bus stop B. Plan to walk 5min and get to Bus Stop C by the fire station

    Если хорошая погода - можно пройтись до Стоунхенжа пешком. Аудио гид выдают с билетами. Довольно интересно послушать про историю места. В апреле цветет овес и вокруг желтые поля- очень красиво

    It would be a better experience if you didn't have to share it with just so many other people. And yes, I know I was part of the problem.

    More interested in how they got there and they built them rather than the actual structure itself, which is frankly a little underwhelming.

    Visit exhibition first and take shuttle bus to go to see the stones. Then you will more enjoy the site. Very interesting.

    More interesting than I expected it to be. Worthwhile considering annual membership of English Heritage to give free access to EH sites for a year.

    You can walk to the henge for free. If the entrance fee prevents you from visiting, the henge is 1.4 miles from the visitor centre. The view is more restricted then paying visitors but still worth it.

    If you are willing to walk to the site and don't want an audio guide or see the exhibition, you save the entry price: just walk past the ticket office and not pay, no appears to check on busy days.

    Disappointing... Or how you can turn a sacred place dedicated to nature cycles into a cash-machine. Behind the "official" path is free path that can get you closer but not that close - ask locals.
