We didn't know about this site until our tour guide took us there after visiting Stonehenge. The documentation at the site tells the story well and we appreciated seeing where the Stonehenge builders gathered. While not a stand-alone site, as Stonehenge is, visiting it adds...More

Good amount of information available at site explaining all you need to know about Woodhenge. Great views across Durrington Walls too.

A visit to Stonehenge is mandatory when visiting in Wiltshire but we had never heard of Woodhenge. What a find! It's somewhat similar in design to Stonehenge but Woodhenge consisted of six concentric circles of wooden posts planted in the ground (the posts have deteriorated...More

Before you visit Stonehenge, visit Woodhenge, which is located along the same roadway just a couple minutes from the stones. Woodhenge was a ‘structure’ comprised of wood, and today is ‘shown’ by concrete bases. It is absolutely related to Stonehenge - that much is known...More

Although they found charcoal remains where the big poles were burned, now there are a whole lot of concrete stubs, disappointing. The worst is the drawing made by the artist, showing a small forrest of poles. It does not make any sense why the villagers...More

Interesting place, the concrete doesn’t do it justice. Time team built a replica and it gave a real impression of how tall the timbers where and what an impressive place it was. This could be vastly improved, and as English heritage make vast sums of...More

About 5 minutes drive from Stonehenge with its own free car park, this Neolithic site has circles of concrete posts marking where the 6 concentric rings of posts stood. Its thought to be a burial mound or a large timber shaped building. Worth visiting if...More

We stopped here after visiting Stonehenge as Woodhenge was mentioned a few times in the visitor centre at Stonehenge, plus, it's closer by and most importantly, it's free. It quite interesting but not a lot to see. We were a bit disappointed that the wood...More

Not a huge amount to see and you do have to use your imagination, but interesting nonetheless. Easy to walk around and good access.

When you take in the Stonehenge landscape as a whole, Woodhenge is quite an interesting side trip to take along with it's counterpart. It completes the circuit that our ancestors made. While theories abound as to their use, it hard to imagine what it's actual...More
