The Stonehenge you can see today is about 4,000 years old. I think for that reason alone ‘visiting Stonehenge’ should be top of your British bucket list, but you know you better than I do, so don’t let me force you.
So Stonehenge; older than The Parthenon, the Easter Island Statues and the Great Wall of China it’s definitely worth a look. They’ve revamped the site in the last few years – the ticket area and parking is now a couple of miles away from it.

Mystery surrounding Stonehenge is fascinating. No one knows for sure where the giant stones came from, how they got to the site or even what they were used for. A burial ground, a solar calendar and an ancient healing site are some of the most popular theories that have stood the test of time. I’m inclined to go with the giant rave theory just for the fun of it!
Stonehenge awakens the more supernatural inspirations within us going back to our more Celtic roots. Stonehenge allows us all to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and look for a more simple existence. We want to soak up the clean fresh air on the Salisbury Plain and take in the beauty of Stonehenge.
