Stonehenge is a must see if you are in the UK. My friends and I choose to hike to the stones as it was overly priced to ride the bus to the top. We parked in the visitor area and it wasn’t expensive to park and didn’t require any reservations.. We began our hike by walking behind the bus stop near the gift store. On our hike we were able to explore and got to see some pretty fields that the people on the bus wouldn’t have been able to see. Once we got to the stones we were approximately 50 feet from them. The people who paid to ride to the bus wasn’t much closer to the stones than we were. The hike was about 2 miles. If you’re able to walk trials I would recommend it as I’m sure you’ll be glad you did. I would also recommend wearing comfortable shoes as there are rock on the trial and some incline.

This is the BEST FREE way to see Stonehenge. Parking at the visitor center and lot requires prior booking and can be VERY expensive. There are trails all across the surrounding fields and area that you can use. This one is the best and easiest.

It also allows access to trails that can get you to Woodhenge and the nearby neolithic burial mounds. It also allows you to see the Stones outside of normal visitor hours.

Park on the side of Willoughby Rd near the intersection with Fargo Road. From there walk straight down Byway 12. (You'll pass the neolithic burial mounds on your right.)

Walk all the way to where the buses are letting people off and go through the gate.

You'll walk along a dirt path about .2 miles next to the sidewalk that paying visitors are using. You can get about 50 feet from the stones.

Total trip is about 2-2.5 miles. (You'll notice from this recording that we went in a wrong gate and had to backtrack.)
