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 Salisbury

Everyone knows Stonehenge, so no need to describe it! The commentary downloaded onto phones worked well, and meant you could move along at your own pace and not have to crowd around information boards. It will be more atmospheric when they finally move, or put into a tunnel, the busy road nearby. The museum contained fascinating objects, and skeletons, excavated from the site. We lunched there too. It was pretty good value and the food was excellent.

you get a great audio guide on your phone for free, the bus drops you off at two points so you can explore the whole area. you get closer to the stones than i remember :)

Excellent, easy, interesting and plenty of information available. Great staff, friendly and helpful
