    Either (A) Don't pay & walk from visitor's centre to view it from behind the fence, or (B) Pay 4 full tour that gets you inside circle & tells you the full history. Waste of money to pay & skip tour.

    That place is just amazing! Breads story, humanity challenge, emotions... Can't wait to come back! I wish I can do camping in here over night!!! As a English Heritage member... I strongly recommend ❤️

    It's possible to park in a side road and see it from not too far rather than pay the £16.50. Free for English Heritage Members though.

    Nice, but too expensive (around £15)! Go by your own car in the morning, when its not too crowded, and see it for free beyond the fence.

    Spectacular. Ten thousand years old and can still accurately calculate the calendar year.

    Incredible to see in person! It felt like I was living in a dream! We missed out on the tour that lets you stand in the center, but even from this distance, it was phenomenal!

    Stonehenge is not the only monument at this place. There are at least 5 more monuments a mile from the main attraction. You can find a path to them on the photographs near Stonehenge main stones.

    Do not pay the admission fee, this is our heritage! Railing it off with barbed wire and charging £17 - English heritage - shame on you!

    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

    It's just a bunch of rocks but I'd still recommend everyone to go there at least once. I was really impressed.

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

    Plug in your headphones into the audio guide and you'll be hands free to listen and take pictures at the same time.

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

    Great place, the exhibition is great. Be mindful about weather is usually very windy at the stones..

    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.

    Look for special occasions when you can walk amongst the stones! The place is spectacular anyway though.

    Bit pricy, but worth a visit! Take the bus next to the visitors center. Much quicker!

    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.

    £14.99 to get in!!! We parked on a dirt road nearby, climbed a fence, crossed a field and got as close as the security guards would let us. Better story and it was free!

    Listen carefully to the audio tour and try to take in the magnitude of what these ancient people did. It's truly amazing!

    Site of first recorded game of intergalactic dominoes. Should have picked up after ourselves but really didn't think the humans would make such a big deal out of this.

    Before you go, apply for after hours access INTO Stonehenge at http://www.english-heritage.org.uk. Otherwise you have to view from several 100 feet away during normal hours with the tour buses.

    Really good if you are an English Heritage member as you go straight through. Think it will be enhanced once the visitors center is built

    Audio tip useful. You are closest to the stones at the beginning of your tour- probably the best time for photos (depending on the sunlight of course!)

    The nearest train station to get there is Salisbury (only 90 minutes from London Waterloo). Then you can take a "Stonehenge tour bus" at the Salisbury station to get on the site. It's magic.

    It's an amazing and magical place. You have to pay for the entrance but you get a free audioguide with your tickets.

    One off the bucket list. It was freezing cold when we went there so make sure to bring a jacket, ear muffs and hand gloves.

    We arrived at 6pm couldnt enter the car park so we Just parked the car at the road side and walk across the road towards the fence. Remember to bring a portable chair or ladder to take pic. :p

    Don't bottleneck at the beginning. Once you move in a little people disperse so you won't have to wait forever to take a picture. However the best (or closest) views are in the first 1/4 or 1/3

    Nice place! Really would like to touch it but seeing it is great experience as well. Can't understand greedy ppl which travel there only to take a pic standing next to the fence lol must go in!

    Certainly worth it, although would love to get the tour that goes inside, if such a thing exists. Next time!

    AMAZING PLACE - a must see. But... absolute WORST COFFEE EVER! The filter coffee from the cafe at the entry/exit was horrendous.

    It is best to first view the Stonehenge in silence from all angles then if you wish to use the audio tour, your own headphones will fit the jack. ☺

    A magnificent sight amid the countryside of Wiltshire. Stop off in nearby Salisbury for some typical pub grub afterwards. Read more

    Go there very early, when it has just opened, you'll be able to take great pictures without the lot of people that are usually in.

    Don't bother paying the admission or car park fee, you can park in the street next to it and then walk over to the fence. You're getting the same view as the people who have paid and saved some money!

    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.

    Make sure you listen to the audio guide. It is brilliant if you can work yourself into the mood. Time it so the sun sets 1h15 after you get in.

    If King Arthur is picketing by the entrance then why not pop over, sign the petition, have a picture taken and buy the old warhorse a coffee. White with two please.

    Free entry for English Heritage and National Trust members. Car park charges in place in summer months except for EH and NT members with car stickers.

    Best approach is from the small village, Lake. Its a 30minute walk across the fields but far more peaceful and better than the traffic island that is the approach from the A303
