Plus 44 Guide to Stonehenge

Stonehenge stands on the bleak Salisbury Plain, an awesome and powerful monument to the once great civilisations of the Stone and Bronze ages. Stonehenge is a 40-ton rock formation which dates back more than 5,000 years. It is one of the most famous prehistoric monuments the world over, and is only 90 miles southwest of London near Salisbury and not far from Bath.

The stone circles (not all of the original stones are still standing) are the last in a series of circular (henge) structures aligned to the rising sun at the mid-summer solstice. Stonehenge's justly famous mystical qualities come from this alignment of the stones to the sun. Large crowds gather each mid-summer solistice to witness the event.
