About

Did you know the famous stone circle is surrounded by other prehistoric monuments, all part of the Stonehenge World Heritage Site? Much is managed as open access – download a self-guided walk leaflet from our website to explore it at your leisure, or join a National Trust guided walk to discover ancient places such as the Great Cursus, the Stonehenge Avenue, King Barrow Ridge and the great henge of Durrington Walls.

We run friendly, informative and fun walks and activities all year round for adults and families – check out the website for details of our events including archaeology walks and 50 Things adventures. The big skies, striking views of the stone circle and sense of ancientness make the Stonehenge landscape a fine place for a stroll or ramble, and a picnic.

While you’re here keep an eye out for hares – one of Britain’s most magical animals to watch. Skylarks fill the skies with their song from early spring to the middle of summer, while chattering starlings flock close to the stone circle all year round.

Bring your binoculars to spot these and many more birds besides. Reaching their peak in June and July are fine displays of chalk grassland wildflowers in many of the fields – part of the Trust’s major chalk grassland restoration project turning ploughed fields into pasture.
