Over the years, there have been many stories about the history of Stonehenge. There still are. No one knows exactly what these large stones represent. But who needs to? When you get the first look of the stones, you might just drop your jaw! Yes, they are indeed very beautiful, especially on a sunny afternoon, when the sun is getting ready to go away and let the night set in.
I've lived in London for many years but I never had the opportunity to visit Stonehenge. Why? Well, it is kind of expensive (for some of us) and it is not very easy to get to. Of course, if you have a car, yay for you! You can get just anywhere! Well this time, I boarded a coach from Victoria Station which was part of a tour expedition to Stonehenge and then Bath. I got the tickets half price from Groupon and this is how I got there!
There are many interesting facts about Stonehenge that you can read here if you are interested. For example, the larger stones weight approximately 50 tons! Other, smaller ones, that weight 4-5 tons, were brought from 240 miles away!?! How did they manage to bring them here? No wonder some people believe that aliens built them!
FACT: did you know that Stonehenge was built at least 300 years before the Egyptian Pyramids?
There's not much around the Stonehenge to see except lots of very cute sheep. It was very funny to see them walk one behind another in a line. When the first sheep stopped, all behind the first one stopped in a very funny way. When the first sheep started walking again, the rest followed. You just have to see it!
To be honest, Stonehenge is an attraction that does not take much time to visit and enjoy. Two hours are more than enough to walk around, take several pictures and enjoy the view (and the sheep).
Stonehenge is the perfect first stop before getting to the final destination.
