Newest Review: ... megalithic monument. And as a child I was fascinated by it even when I saw it. I longed to be able to stand in its centre and feel all the mystical energy. As an adult the fascination has long since worn off. I still look forward to seeing it, but am not drawn to stop and admire it. It is to be found on Salisbury Plain just off the A303 and can be easily viewed from the road. If you have no ... more

Stonehenge - ancient monument of huge historical importance, vast in the consciousness of the mystics of our nation, surrounded by mystery and magic - tiny weenie circle of stones when you get up close! As a child I pestered my parents relentlessly to visit Stonehenge, after reading a triology of books set in the dim and distant past centered on this megalithic monument. And as a child I was fascinated by it even when I saw it. I longed to be able to stand in its centre and feel all the mystical energy. As an adult the fascination has long since worn off.

Stonehenge is a huge contradiction in terms, on one hand it is one of the most important historic monuments in England and a World Heritage site. On the other it is probably the most boring and expensive historic monument you will visit in the UK. Stonehenge is located between the A303 (London to Cornwall) and A344. You can see it while driving past on the A303, but to stop you need to turn onto the A344 to get to the car park for Stonehenge. You park on the opposite side of the A344 to Stonehenge and walk under a tunnel to get to the monument. If you're one of the people that doesn't like to pay, you can park on the road and risk you're life crossing the ... Read the complete review

I have visited Stonehenge twice and they couldn't have been two more contrasting trips! The first time I visited was for a school trip, I was seven years old and I was very tiny. Because of this, the stones were enormous! I remember gazing up at the mystical stones in awe at their size and solidity and wondering how on earth they had got there...aliens? magic? Dragged from Wales on logs as we had just learnt in class? (I chose not to believe the latter as it was much less exciting). The second time I visited Stonehenge was two years ago, on a wet night in June at 2am. After being dropped off a mile up the road and arriving already soaked , I quickly forgot how cold ...

Every year on the summer solstice, an assortment of druids, pilgrims, pagans and other expectant travellers flock to Stonehenge in the hope of witnessing what is rumoured to be mystical sight. If the morning is clear, they will hope to see the midsummer sun rise between two of the great sarsen uprights, in line with the monolith of the heel stone at the far side of the circle. At this moment there will be much singing and rejoicing amongst the visitors, much wringing of hands amongst the custodians that all this frivolity doesn't damage their World Heritage Site, and much shuffling of feet by photographers as they try to make it appear that this alignment does actually ..
