History of Stonehenge

The earliest structures known in the immediate area are four or five pits, three of which appear to have held large pine ‘totem-pole like’ posts erected in the Mesolithic period, between 8500 and 7000 BC; however; no one understands how these posts relate to the later monument of Stonehenge.

When much of southern England was largely covered by woodland, the chalk downland in the area of Stonehenge may have been an unusually open landscape which is the most plausible reason why this ancient place became the site of an early Neolithic monument complex.

This complex included the causewayed enclosure at Robin Hood’s Ball, two cursus monuments or rectangular earthworks (the Greater, or Stonehenge, and Lesser Cursus), and several long barrows, all dating from the centuries around 3500 BC. The presence of these monuments probably influenced the later location of Stonehenge.

Book Ahead to Visit Stonehenge During COVID Travel

Advance booking is essential to visit Stonehenge, along with wearing a mask at all times. Stonehenge is limiting visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member or Local Residents Pass holder, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.

Stonehenge VIP Experience

A remarkable opportunity to spend time inside the tranquil circle of Stonehenge, the VIP experience at Stonehenge takes you up close to this world-famous monument. Walk among the inner circle of the Stonehenge ring and learn the secrets of the stones from your knowledgeable host and experience the power and mystery of these ancient sarsens and bluestones for yourself.

Once you arrive at the stones, you can wander amongst these ancient stones, discovering all the fascinating details on these mighty sarsens and bluestones that are only visible up close. Your knowledgeable host can answer questions. While you're in the stone circle, make sure to take photos; you just can't stand on or touch the stones. Visit for an hour outside of their general admission opening hours with a maximum of 30 people per session.
