Located in Wiltshire, England, and dating from between 3,000BCE and 2,000BCE, Stonehenge is one of the UK’s most recognisable sites. The ring of standing stones attracts thousands of visitors a year, and its impressive structure and mystic history continues to showcase the spectacular power of prehistoric architecture.
Embrace the mystery of Stonehenge
Visiting Stonehenge is a unique and worthwhile experience. As it was built in a time before written records, many myths surround its function and assembly. Ancient human bones have been discovered at the site, suggesting that Stonehenge may have been used as a burial site. Furthermore, the stones themselves seem to have been deliberately aligned to the sunset of the winter solstice and the sunrise of the summer solstice, which implies it could have been a spiritual site.
There are also no clear indications as to how the stones were placed in their respective positions. Recent discoveries by archaeologists suggest that a giant glacier chiselled off the blocks and transported them around 160km in the direction of Stonehenge, with humans dragging them toward their current location. However, how the site was constructed remains a mystery. Each stone weighs an average of 25 tons, and the site was built in an era that lacked the necessary construction tools. Over the years, this has added to the mysticism surrounding Stonehenge and is what draws visitors to the spectacular stone structure every year.

The transport was excellent, thank you, and the quality of the coach yesterday to Hillingdon was commented on too. Many thanks, Arnett Hills School
The driver was fantastic, really chatty and accommodating. She even put on a few films on which made the kids keep their heads up and they were all talking and laughing. A note which seems to have happened on the last two coach rides now. They both seem to miss the exit for Freezeland Way Read More
