Stonehenge Dawn Walk

Dawn in the Stonehenge Landscape is a sublime experience. With our National Trust Ranger you may spot skylarks, yellowhammers and possibly deer and brown hare that make the World Heritage site their home.

This is a tranquil time of day to experience this special place. The walk is around 3-4 miles long and will be a chance to breathe deeply, listen to the dawn chorus and let your eyes rest on one of the most iconic sites in the world. The Ranger will guide you and point out the wildlife and archaeology as you walk. It's well worth the early start.
