Stonehenge is situated in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside and attracts people from all over the world. Visit this ancient monument on a long drawn-out summers evening and the shadows cast by the stones will make you feel as though you are walking through an enormous sun-dial. Visit the site during the wild throws of a winter storm and you can’t help but to be gripped by the eerie atmosphere that only three thousand years of history can muster.
Where to stay?
There are plenty of Stonehenge Hotels which will accommodate you all year round. The city of Salisbury nearby is scattered with traditional British hotels to suit even the most careful budget and for those of you who desire extreme luxury, there are Victorian mansions galore and even a converted Tudor stable in which to rest your weary head for the night.
It is worth noting that Stonehenge isn’t the only heritage site in the area. Twenty five miles away in Avebury is situated one of the most incredible prehistoric earthworks in Europe.
There is no doubt that Stonehenge should be on any traveller’s map of sites to visit. It is a bonus that such an intriguing structure should be situated in one of the most beautiful rural counties that England has to offer.
