This world-known place is a true mystery. It consists of a number of megaliths arranged in a circular shape. Historians are still not sure when exactly it was built and more importantly, how. For a long time, it was believed to be made by druids using magic, but later it was discovered that it was constructed much earlier, in about 3000 BC.
Nowadays it is a popular tourist site attracting more than 800,000 people a year. Be sure to hop into the visitor centre as well - interesting exhibitions and projections can be seen here. There are many other prehistoric monuments that can be visited nearby.
Stonehenge Tour Bus operates from Salisbury every half an hour in the summer, and hourly in the winter.
