Take a step back in time and explore Stonehenge, the prehistoric monument that has been puzzling historians for thousands of years.

Uncover the theories of the Stone Circle, including how each 13ft (3.96m), 25-ton (25,000kg) stone was transported and sculpted into the world-famous phenomenon that we know today.

What is Stonehenge and what is there to see?

View Stonehenge up close from the perimeter fence and marvel at one of the world's most famous landmarks, as you follow in the footsteps of prehistoric people from 5,000 years ago.

Step into the visitors' centre to discover how builders worked to create the Stone Circle that has stood the test of time, in an exhibition featuring more than 250 objects. What tools did they use? How did they manage to carry the stones tens, and sometimes hundreds, of miles by land and water? How did they shape and raise them?

Try to work out whether Stonehenge was created as a place of sun worship, a sacred burial site or something completely different!

Unravel its remarkable features in an audio-visual 360-degree experience that transports you, virtually, within the monument.

You can also explore recreations of Neolithic houses to catch a glimpse of what life was like at the time.
