Stonehenge Admission Ticket

1. Stonehenge Admission Ticket

Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous prehistoric monument in the world. It was built in several stages, beginning as a simple earthwork enclosure. The unique linteled stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period, around 2500 B.C. Your timed admission ticket gives you access to a site that has continued to attract interest for centuries. Today Stonehenge, Avebury, and other associated locations comprise a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring a unique and dense concentration of prehistoric monuments. Stonehenge has been the subject of speculation and fascination since at least the early medieval period. How did Neolithic people construct this masterpiece of engineering using only the simple tools and technologies available to them? Hundreds of prehistoric objects from the Stonehenge World Heritage Site are on display in the visitor center. One of the new features at Stonehenge is an outdoor gallery that includes several reconstructed Neolithic houses. Using archaeological evidence and authentic materials, these buildings provide a glimpse into the lifestyle of the Neolithic people who built Stonehenge. Stonehenge has many different meanings to people today. It is an icon of Britain, a wonder of the world, a spiritual place, and a source of inspiration.

What people are saying about South West England

Awesome! Honestly, your experience will be highly depending on the weather. Thankfully, It was a good weather for me, really worth 20£ entry fee. And you can see anything without entry, except from the road which was far away. Keep in mind that you cannot touch nor stand close up to the stones anymore. However, with a good weather, the site was enjoyable and worth to visit once in a life time.

The experience at Stonehenge was amazing, there are many more sites to see once you go in. The walk up to the rocks was beautiful as you get to see the landscape and the distance view.

Well worth a visit. Everything is well-preserved and organised. The museum tour is very informative and of course the stones themselves are amazing!

Excellent presentation from the actors and informative exhibition. Highly recommended

Great, well worth the admission Really informative
