HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: An extraordinary prehistoric landscape surrounding Stonehenge
There are terrific views of Stonehenge from paths through the Landscape. During June and July the fields are covered with a profusion of wildflowers.
Among the area included in Stonehenge Landscape are Stonehenge Down, which features ceremonial walkway, a Bronze Age barrow cemetery, and the cursus enclosure. At King Barrow Ridge are further Bronze Age mounds, and at Normanton Down is a round barrow cemetery. Entry to Stonehenge Landscape is free, although at peak times there may be a charge at the Stonehenge car park for visitors who are not members of the National Trust or English Heritage.
