On the Monday of my trip I popped down to Stonehenge before I went off on my next leg. I had seen Stonehenge before, briefly out of a car window on the way past but had never been. It's not on a bus route and in order to get their you need your own transport or be willing to fork out for a bus tour. On the forking out front, I did rather well as my Historic Scotland membership covers this as well.
There is a lot said about not being allowed in amongst the stones and I'm not going to chuck my penny's worth in because after visiting it, I'm not sure what is right. I would have loved to have wandered amongst the stones but if I was allowed, then so would a couple of hundred others that you see some of in the picture below - this was at 11 o'clock on a Monday morning so I dread to think how busy this is on a Weekend afternoon. Perhaps after all, my best view was from the low barrier just outside the circle.
