First erected some 6000 years ago, the mystery of Stonehenge has cast a spell over the world’s greatest minds ever since. Modern calculations estimate that the three phases of Stonehenge’s construction took more than thirty million hours of labour, the transportation of the masses of colossal rocks across mountains and rivers an almost unbelievable feat for humans in prehistoric times. However, the reasons behind the creation of this ethereal, striking site remain vastly unknown. This monolithic monument’s assembling remains a prehistoric puzzle, it’s mystery a healthy reminder that humankind can’t ever know it all. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, there’s no doubting Stonehenge’s epic significance for humanity both then and now.

    Best Time To Visit This mysterious, celestial site is best experienced during quieter times. Arriving in the early mornings or late afternoons means you will miss the worst of the crowds, with most of the shuttle and tour buses peak arrival times around mid-morning and early afternoon. July to mid-September are jam-packed at Stonehenge, so hedge your bets and organise your trip for the months of April to June when weather remains still pleasant, too.
    Getting There Shuttle buses from London run every day during summer and most days during winter, while trains to the nearest station at Salisbury also come regularly. From Salisbury, hop aboard one of the many buses to the site.
    Money Saving Tips Strapped for cash? History buffs can enjoy free admission to Stonehenge with an English Heritage and National Trust annual membership. Plus our range of budget-friendly Stonehenge tour packages will also provide extra bang for your buck.
