Stonehenge Stone Circle Access Visits with Permission from English Heritage

Stone Circle Access visits take place outside the normal opening times at Stonehenge, and are very early in the morning or late in the evening, and are not offered during the normal opening times.

The visit must be pre-booked and paid for in advance of your visit by completing the Stone Circle Access application. Each visitStonehenge Access lasts for one hour, and we allow only a maximum of 26 people within the stones.

A Stone Circle Access visit is not a guided tour, and touching of the stones is not permitted. The visits provide the opportunity to go into the centre of the stone circle which is not possible during normal opening hours when visitors have to stay outside the stone circle.

As the visits are out of hours, there are no audio guides available and the gift shop and catering outlet are also closed.  However, if you have a stone circle access reservation you can also visit Stonehenge during normal opening times on the same day for no additional cost.

To enhance your Stone Circle Access visit you can order a guidebook, which will be ready for your collection at the time of your visit.
