Where is Stonehenge?
Stonehenge is located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 90 miles (145km) west of London. You can travel there in around two hours by road, or an hour and a half by train (followed by a bus from Salisbury station to the Stonehenge site). The easiest way to take a day trip from London to Stonehenge is by coach tour.
It's best to book your Stonehenge tickets in advance, although a small number of walk-up tickets are available on the day.
