Stonehenge is a megalithic monument on the Salisbury Plain in England, about 85 miles southwest of London. It consists of a ditch and bank surrounding huge stones -- many weighing between one and 45 tons -- arranged in circle and horseshoe patterns, along with a lane connecting it to the nearby River Avon. Construction began around 3,000 B.C. and continued until about 1,100 B.C.

I went there with some friends in December 2004. Although it was a clowdy day in London & all the way in the train ride from London to Salisbury. We were very lucky as when we reach the stone it was sunny.

How to get there -train:
From London the trains depart from Waterloo Station to Salisbury.
