If you are planning to visit Stonehenge itself you have to pre-book to be sure of getting in. Around £15 per person if you are not members of English Heritage. Or just drive past on the A303, you will see the stones at a lower price! Head west at around five o'clock on a Friday afternoon and you will be able to view them at leisure as you crawl past in the queue. Done that numerous times...

Or give Stonehenge a miss and visit Avebury and the surrounding area instead.

Don't get me started on English Heritage :mad::censored:...........'protectors of OUR heritage my a*se......:madder:

As an old(er) person I was lucky enough to have wander freely amoungst OUR 'heritage' before they became just a money making scam.........as a british tax payer I don't see why I and others like me should pay to visit OUR heritage..............fair enough, if I was on continent and wanted to visit heritage of another country, certainly I'd expect to pay, as I'd not be a tax payer of that country.

Anyways, there are much less spoiled 'heritage' sites in this country than Stonehenge........as you say, Avebury and area's around for a start. :smiley:

When my parents were young they camped within the stones of Stonehenge in the 1940s. My mother said it was very creepy and she wouldn't like to do it again. Don't think they would be allowed to do it now .

Even driving past Stonehenge now makes me want to weep. The huge visitor centre makes it look like a theme park and you have to visit the stones on a small train. I can remember just turning up and walking round them.
Avebury us far more atmospheric and you can also walk to the Longbarrow from the A4. There used to be a problem though with break ins to cars parked in the lay by. At Avebury you can park in the large National Trust car park and walk along the pathway into the village.

If you drive up the A360 via Shrewton, sleepyspot 51°13'0.91"N 1°56'27.70"W or carry on to Devizes, C&CC right by the side of canal, or another sleepyspot watch the horses on early morning gallops just past Beckhampton off the A4, 51°25'19.43"N 1°53'28.65"W all within 20 miles of Stonehenge.

The coaches taking foreigners to see the site actually stop on the main road and create the tail backs. I can't believe that the police have not got wise to this and fine them for obstructing the highway!

There's a good site at the Woodbridge inn near Upavon about 12 miles to Stones, good food at pub as well.
