Just over 2 hours drive from London is a remarkable structure. Dating back to prehistoric times it might not be as impressive as some of the structures I have seen in South East Asia. However, it still stands out here in the UK as not to be missed.
Limited to a 2 hour window due to our new normal ( covid -19) it is still worth seeing.
You will arrive at the visitor centre and after looking around the place seeing artefacts encased and explanations about the time around of building and also what life was like. Also, look out for an impromptu guide who just happens to be part of the assembled crowd. Whilst you are looking at the exhibition with your fellow visitors he just appears amongst you and starts to explain about the Stones. 🙂
At first I thought he was just a fellow visitor with some degree of knowledge but he is one of the tour guides and does a wonderful job of keeping you informed but at the same time entranced.
He stops talking as abruptly as he started and wanders off and as you move around into one of the other rooms he appears again and explains more.
Great performance from a knowledgeable man.
