Take A Tour
Visiting Stonehenge is a paid experience, and tickets are often purchased in advance. Ticket purchases are given back to the organizations responsible for maintaining the monument. You can purchase your tickets yourself, or purchase them through a private tour company that will also provide guided tours and some with transportation. A guided tour is not required for Stonehenge entry, but it is highly recommended, especially for those who are visiting for the first time. You can tour Stonehenge throughout the year, but do expect a higher volume in the warmer months and holidays.
