"Stonehenge is the best-known..." Day Trip: Stonehenge Tip by Pamela_Peace

Day Trip: Stonehenge, London: 15 reviews and 45 photos

 
 

<font color=darkgreen><B>Stonehenge</font> is the best-known of the ancient stone religious sites located throughout Great Britain and western Europe. Used by the druids for their sun-based festivals around 250 BC, these sites perhaps served as astronomical calendars. The largest of the stones still standing here measures more than 20 feet tall and extends 8 feet below ground. Stonehenge is open daily yearround. There is an admission charge, but to those of us 'non-Europeans' it's well worth the price.
