"Stonehenge: a Mystery" Stonehenge by leigh767
Stonehenge Travel Guide: 147 reviews and 622 photos
Out in the Wiltshire countryside, what is arguably the world's most famous stone circle structure continues to draw visitors to its celebrated spot.
A word of caution: the structure is disappointingly small in reality, so the best way to appreciate it and the mystery surrounding its construction is to read up on it before you go. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stonehenge has substantial info) Otherwise, you might just find yourself thinking that the greatest mystery of the day is why you spent hours (2 if you're coming from London) driving out to this isolated spot to stare at the few remnants of an age-old rock structure.
Also note that Stonehenge is now cordoned off so you can no longer walk between the stones unless you book a special tour in advance. I dare say the experience with this mysterious structure would've been twice as memorable if we were allowed to walk amid the rocks, but as it was, the entire structure is roped off, adding a sad note of arficiality to it.
Try looking out for the Heelstone, through which the sun would shine directly onto the circle centre on a mid summer's day.
