"Stonehenge" Salisbury Tourist Trap Tip by Andyuk51

Salisbury Tourist Traps: 6 reviews and 4 photos

Stonehenge is situated about 8 miles north of Salisbury in Wiltshire on Salisbury Plain.
An old organised heap of stones! Sorry about the synical description and yes its worth a look but to be honest you can get the look you need from the road over the fence without paying the entry fee. The car park is free as well!
Once you are in the area of the stones you are not able to get close or wander through the stones. Why? Because they noticed that with so many people touching and climbing it was having an adverse affect on the stones namely, they were wearing out!
They are worth a look bearing in mind their age and historical value etc but dont bother to pay to get in!

Unique Suggestions: On your way back to Salisbury take the A303 east for about 2 miles, at the roundabout turn right to go into amesbury town. go over the lights and at the mini roundabout turn right to go into the town High st. at the end of the street turn left to take you out of the town. Follow this road for a little less than a mile take the left turn. Follow this road back into Salisbury through a few typical English country villages. There are a couple of pubs to get a good meal or snack or just to sit with a pint in
The Bridge in at Woodford and The Wheatsheaf in Lower Woodford.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
