Planning for Stonehenge Tour

Stonehenge is one of the most visited sites in the world. It’s not hard to see why: It is a mysterious place, and its origins remain a mystery. The monument was built around 5,000 years ago, though we don’t know who built it or why.

Stonehenge is located near Amesbury and Salisbury in Wiltshire, England. It is believed that Stonehenge was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC. The site was constructed by Neolithic people who were influenced by their belief in life and death, as well as the movements of celestial bodies.

The stones at Stonehenge were erected in a circular setting on top of a hill made of earth and chalk. The structure consists of several concentric circles with a diameter ranging from 100 feet to 350 feet (30 meters). There are also several burial mounds around the circle, which were used by some ancient cultures as burial grounds or as places where they buried their dead rulers’ remains.

There are many theories about how and why Stonehenge was built, but archaeologists think that it was probably used for rituals related to astronomy and agriculture. Archaeologists have found evidence that suggests that some people may have been buried there; however, most historians believe that the site was used for religious purposes rather than as a cemetery or burial ground.

What we do know is that Stonehenge attracts millions of visitors each year. If you want to visit this ancient site, here are some tips for planning your Stonehenge tour:

When to Go: Stonehenge is open year-round except for December 25th and January 1st. However, many people visit during the summer months when the weather is warmer and dryer than in other seasons. To avoid crowds and enjoy a quieter atmosphere, consider visiting between November and March when it’s less crowded and often more pleasant weather-wise.

How Long to Stay: There’s no easy answer to this question because Stonehenge can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of their interests or background knowledge of history or science. But if you’re interested in learning more about this mysterious monument, you may want to plan on spending at least half a day here — preferably longer if possible.

Getting There: There are no trains or buses that run directly to Stonehenge, so you’ll have to drive or hire a car from Salisbury train station or Southampton airport (about 20 miles away). The nearest major airport is London Heathrow, which is an hour away by car.

Tickets and Admission Fees: Admission tickets are free (although donations are encouraged). You can buy tickets online or at one of three visitor centres: Stonehenge Visitor Centre (near Amesbury), Stonehenge Tourist Information Centre (near Avebury) and Stonehenge gift shop (Salisbury Cathedral Close).
