Wings over Stonehenge - Stonehenge Airfield Walk
Stonehenge Airfield was a hugely important place during World War 1, training pilots to fly aircraft into battle. This walk around the Stonehenge landscape is led by expert guides who will explain all about this key site in aviation history.
- Booking essential
- Admission applies
This is a circular walk centred on the World War I airfield which existed on the very boundary of the Stonehenge Monument, between the years 1917 and 1921. Its purpose was to train the pilots and observers required to man the enormous RFC and RNAS Handley Page bombers of the time. Our expert guides will give an illustrated talk whilst walking on the history of this little known part of the Stonehenge landscape.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
