    An audio guide is an absolute must for this tour. Pick one up! Standard headphone fit it too. Convenient

    You might be a little disappointed because the real thing looks smaller than expected but still whip out your camera-Stonehenge against a clear blue sky is very picturesque.

    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.
