*A tip from my own sister while at the Stonehenge: tickets to see the Stonehenge is £8 per adult so if you just want to get close enough for a good shot (BTW visitors aren't allowed to get close enough to touch the stones anyway), skip the fee by cutting across a sheep farm and you will come close enough for a great close up of the entire formation.
