Stonehenge Day Trips from London
Helpful advice from us and our travellers so you can enjoy your experience to the fullest.
How long does it take to go to Stonehenge from London?
Since Stonehenge is situated around 145 km (90 mi) west of London, it takes around 2 hrs 20 min to reach both via car or train.
Can I independently travel to Stonehenge?
You can, however there are caveats. The train from Waterloo to Salisbury, the nearest rail station at 15 km (9 mi) away, is usually quite expensive, so you'll then need to get the independent Stonehenge shuttle bus to reach the legendary henge. For this reason, most travellers find that a guided tour is the easiest solution as you're taken directly to Stonehenge.
Can I touch the stones at Stonehenge?
Not usually, basically the stones are protected by a velvet rope 364 days of the year. There is however, one exception is the Summer Solstice festival, where you can camp on the grounds for the night to witness the sunrise and the first day of summer.
