"paid a visit to Stonehenge..." United Kingdom Favorite Tip by Kallista

United Kingdom General: 621 reviews and 470 photos


Favorite thing: paid a visit to <b><font color=#0033FF>Stonehenge</b></font> ?'hanging stones'? ? it looks compellingly immense and silent. This famous prehistoric stone circle, a World Heritage Site, stands alone 16 km north of Salisbury on the dry chalk elevation of Salisbury Plain.

Why did the people, living 4000 years ago, build this place of worship? We were told by the guide stationed there that the formation of this Megalithic Monument is somewhat linked with the <b><i>cult of the dead and with sun-worship</b></i>. One of my friends commented that its just a couple of stones ? but my buddy and I felt <b><i>chills</b></i> just by looking at it from a distance.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
