Stonehenge - World Heritage Site

Located in Salisbury, Wiltshire is the World Heritage site of Stonehenge. It comprises of a circular setting of large standing stones. According to archealogists the structure was erected sometime in 2500 BC.


When the Stonehenge was opened to public intially, people were allowed to touch the stones - even climb on them. But due to erosion over a period of time, the structure has been roped off and you can view it only from a distance.









There is a tourist bus called the Stonehenge Tour Bus which departs from the Salisbury rail and bus stations regularly.
