For one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it pays to go to see Stonehenge. Sure, it's a bunch of rocks all stacked up, there's a highway now running behind it, and it's not so pretty, but seeing something that lasted 5,000 years makes one marvel at the determination and persistence mankind has had to survive on this earth. Plus, there are plenty of other attractions in the Salisbury Plain area to make a road trip to see this historic site worth it; consult the website www.streetmap.co.uk for maps of this area. Last thing I need is for someone to get lost! Tips on times, prices, and how to get there are in my Overview.
