After 5,000 years the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is still a unique and awe-inspiring day out with the kids or family; an exceptional survivor from a culture now lost to us. The monument evolved between 3,000 BC and 1,600 BC and is aligned with the rising and setting of the sun at the solstices, but its exact purpose remains a mystery.
Discover more of the history and legends of this World Heritage Site when on a day out with the kids or family in our complimentary Stonehenge audio tour (in 10 languages, subject to availability), then take time to explore the surrounding prehistoric landscape.
