Ancient Druid worship site, burial ground, sundial–mysteries abound at this ancient stone circle.

Just two hours outside of London, a trip to Stonehenge will send you out into the English countryside, and whisk you back in time. A World Heritage Site, Stonehenge is as renowned for its architectural feats as it is for its quiet, steadfast beauty. Over the past decade, archaeologists have used all manner of new technology, like ground-penetrating radar, to map the surrounding area. They’ve discovered that Stonehenge is just a small remainder of what was once a large area of similar monuments.

A recent visitors center now welcomes all travelers. Travel advisors can help you with a private group booking, which allows you to visit Stonehenge outside of the usual tourist hours.
