Reasons Why You Need to Visit the Stonehenge

If you are planning to visit London, you should also consider adding Stonehenge in your itinerary. You won’t regret making a trip to Salisbury plain to witness one of the ancient wonders of the world. This archaeological site will transport you into a mesmerizing world of magic and take you back to 2,600 BC.

Almost a million tourists visit Stonehenge every single year, so we took the time to list down why you should visit the most popular prehistoric monument of the world, too!

  • Experiencing the Extraordinary – Being able to visit the Stonehenge is an ethereal experience. It may be because of the many mysteries that surround it, but you can’t deny that the place is just out of the ordinary. The structure’s eerie symmetry is also what keeps us on our toes. It has been proven that the pattern of the Stonehenge is perfectly directed to the solstices. This high level of accuracy even in prehistoric times when scientific instruments had not been invented defies all logic.
  • The Mystery that Surrounds It – The mystery that surrounds the Stonehenge could be the most exciting thing about visiting it. As a matter of fact, there isn’t one, but several secrets that surround the structure. There have been myths that revolve around the Stonehenge and some people even believe that some of the stones have healing powers. Recent research revealed that the entire site could actually be a burial site of an ancient tribe. All these stories just makes the Stonehenge even more interesting.
  • Its Design is Incredible – One of the many reasons why Stonehenge gained tremendous popularity is because of its design. It was originally built in several stages. These stages in construction took five hundred years to complete from 3,000 BC to 2,500 BC.
  • Visiting the Stonehenge – Stonehenge is busy all throughout the year. Avoid visiting between 10 am to 12 noon if you can because these are when all the tour coaches flock the site. There is also another spike of visiting coaches in the early or mid afternoon. The best time for you to visit the site if you want it for yourself is first thing after its opening and by late afternoon.

During opening hours, you are not allowed to see the stones up close. The nearest you get to see them is about ten yards. However, you can gain full access to the stones outside the public opening hours. If you want to go beyond the barriers, you need to get Special Access visits. Only 26 people can be given a chance to walk amongst the stones.
