Went here on our way from Avebury to Stonehenge. It's just off the highway, and only a very short walk from the car park. I would think you'd struggle to spend more than 15 minutes here, but it's worth the stop just to admire the...More

We used a private guide Keith Britton who is not just a great guide but an excellent photographer. We got loads of family pics free. If it makes sense for you, you could hire him and his car for the trip. Else there are several good travel agents to chose from.
