Said to be the world’s most famous prehistoric monument, this 5,000-year-old stone circle is surrounded by mystery and wonder. There are many myths involving giants and healing powers surrounding the stones, as well as new evidence suggesting it to be an ancient burial site. Found in Wiltshire, England, these stones are visited by 800,000 every year.

The fact is no one really knows how or why the stones came to be. What we can be sure of is how stunning they look, particularly at sunset.

Why See Stonehenge


This World Heritage Site is situated in a picturesque landscape that showcases (when it arrives) the beautiful English sunshine.

What’s fascinating is that the symmetrical lines of Stonehenge are aligned perfectly to the solstices. This is highly precise for the time when it was made and boggles the mind as to how it was achieved – very similar to the mystery of The Great Pyramids.
