Stonehenge

About 8 miles North of Salibury is the famous prehistoric monument of Stonehenge. Erected  between 3000 and 2000 BC, this World Heritage Site is the subject of much historial debate and well worth a visit.

 

The site, with newly refurbished visitor centre, boasts a permanent exhibion with loans of prehistoric artefacts from the Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum and the Wiltshire Museum, Devizes.

It is also host to the Summer Solstice Festival in June, when English Heritage provides full and open access to the stones to some 20,000 people celebrating this pagan festival.
