Nice area, had a lovely morning walk. Some signs with info about site. Was a bit of a letdown that poles were concrete and not wood, concrete not very appealing. Presume wood or wood-look not practical. Nice for a quick 30 min walk if passing by, would not travel far just to see this.

With my bad luck I arrived on a day that everyone else decided to visit. I took a while to find a spot in the parking lot. This place is very different than Stonhinge and well worth the trip up there. This stone circle location is very different than the other and the history reveals some interesting comparisons.

Not much to see here but the info boards here, the adjacent Durrington Walls and along the route to Stonehenge make an interesting (and imo much better) healthy alternative to the 'money grabbing - file past the gift shop on your way out' official visitor centre and tour. From here you can see where it is believed (the story/history seems... More

This is only worth doing if you live within 15 minutes (if so you will already have visited) or come a long distance to see Stonehenge and have 15 minutes to kill. It genuinely only takes 15minutes to stroll round and read the information on the board. The views of the surrounding area are nice but tat really is it.

Woodhenge is a lovely low key spot. It is to the east of Stonehenge and is the result of a 1920s excavation with now six concentric circles of concrete bollards put into the position where post holes were createdover 3000 years ago. There is a small car park, information boards and great long distance views. It needs to be taken... More

For those with a fascination about Pre-historic and Bronze Age history - here's something for your bucket list. That said, the main attraction is relatively small and quickly ticked off. The surrounding area is brilliant for long dog walks, penned in to avoid livestock (though you will walk through some areas with sheep) and vast. There's signage in the fields... More

We arrived on a warmish summer evening after having visited Stonhenge. There were few people here (other than those playing pokeman go) and it was a quiet and tranquil place. Concrete stumps indicate where large wooden posts would have stood and there is a plaque describing the history and location. We were there for about 30 minutes but there are... More

Concrete stumps that are less then knee high now represent what would have originally been true trunks many feet high and a fair amount of the impact is lost. Parking is free but there isn't much of it so you end up parking on the roadway most of the time, not great if you have young children with you. Fine... More

To be honest there is not much to see here on the surface but it is still worth a visit to understand the prehistoric and Bronze Age history of the area and the wider Stonehenge landscape. There are two monuments, the impressive earth works of durrington walls and woodhenge itself. Several good walks in the area to occupy more time... More
