Stonehenge – Salisbury Plain

Right in the middle of Salisbury Plain lies the iconic neolithic stone circle Stonehenge. This is a must see for any visitor to England. Be prepared for long queues to get in, even early in the day, but the wait is well worth it. Unfortunately visitors can no longer get right up close to the stones, but the path that circles the entire site is not too far away and the rope fence does not get in the way of viewing. The centre has then usual trappings of a cafe, souvenir shop and educational areas, and the site is wheelchair and pushchair friendly. Today's scholars still debate over what the purpose of the stones were, and theories abound, but if you want to get up close to the stones you'll have to become a druid! The Sarsen stones that Stonehenge is made from were transported from Wales.
