    Stretch your legs

    Walkers enjoying a stroll in the sun

    The Cursus Barrows group of Bronze Age burial mounds are just a five-minute walk from the car park, with views across the downs to King Barrow Ridge. Or download our trail for a longer walk. The barrows at Stonehenge were built on the hills to obtain the best views of the Stone Circle. Please help the barrows last another 4,000 years by not climbing on them.

    Bring a picnic

    Picnic Hamper

    On a fine day Stonehenge Down is a great spot to lay out picnic blankets and enjoy lunchtime away from the hustle and bustle, with plenty of space to run around. In spring and summer, look and listen for skylarks high in the sky. Please take your litter home.
