The walk to the stones is lovely and well worth taking but I had a frail companion who ,whilst she loved the walk , could have done with a chair to rest half way but apparently it is national trust land not land belonging to English heritage ! There was a drone circling the stones making a ghastly humming noise . We asked the guards if they could remove it and they said it was beyond their control as the drone was being operated by someone off site . This is a shame as it slightly spoiled the atmosphere .

Having wanted to visit Stonehenge for many years, I was delighted to get the opportunity. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thete is lots of information around to look at before walking up to the stones. Good idea to have the bus service which we used on the way back. Plenty of picnic tables for our snack afterwards. Good toilet facilities, and plenty handbell stations.
Definitely worth a visit. Easy to park, free parking if already purchased a ticket in advance. We walked rather than taking the bus. Nice walk. We'll organised and maintained. Nice facilities and interesting exhibition
