Taking a trip to Stonehenge and the nearby Cotswolds is a great way to explore some of the amazing sites outside of London.
A visit to this area offers a glimpse into a different kind of England that is a world away from the busy streets of the capital. From gorgeous cottages to windy English country lanes to impressive archaeological sites, here’s what to expect on an unforgettable day trip from London.
Stonehenge is the world’s most famous Neolithic stone circle that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s over 5,000 years old, and sees over 1 million visitors pass through its entrance gate each year.
The site has been developed so an entrance ticket not only gives you access to the stone circle, but also includes entrance to the state-of-the-art information centre and mock-up Neolithic village. All in all, a visit should take around 90 minutes.
