Destination: Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England.
Date: 26 November 2011
Stonehenge here we come! Being one of the top places to visit in England and one of the most mysterious places in the world, we decided to go to Stonehenge. We rent a car from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire to this place and the journey took about 1 hour 50 minutes.
The car parking is free! Anyhow you have to pay for the admission or else you could view the stones for free from a bit far distance. Ticket price is £7.50 for an adult & £4.50 for a child. For more information you could visit here English Heritage or Stonehenge.
Above is the complimentary audio guide which must be returned at the exit but subject to availability. This audio guide available in 10 languages but to listen to it you must put it near to your ear, which make me felt quite unpleasant as I would prefer to be hand-free because I was pushing my baby in her stroller. Anyhow my hubby got his earphone, so he could use it without having to hold the device, making everyone looks like as they were talking on the mobile phone! :)
The exact purpose of the stones remain a mystery.
Hubby & our honeybun enjoyed watching the big stones on her Stokke Evo.
Above is called as Heel Stone.
Our daughter is watching the sheep!
The admission fees will be used for the conservation of this heritage monument.
You could buy light refreshment from the Stonehenge Kitchen. They provide some tables and chairs for you to eat or drink but they are outdoor, so if you would like to visit during cold weather, do not expect to enjoy your refreshment in warm place!
Furthermore, when visiting during Winter, bare in mind that the day is shorter. During our visit around 4.30pm it was already getting dark.
Besides that, they have the Stonehenge gift shop for visitors to buy any gifts :)
All in all, besides getting a chance to see and learn about the Stonehenge, we could see the beauty of the green land with many sheep around. For those who do not fancy beauty of the nature, this place might provide nothing to you.
