Can I get a train to Stonehenge?
A question that is heard a lot in many online travel companies is can I get a train to Stonehenge? Unfortunately, it is not that easy to get to Stonehenge and we would also recommend an organised day trip from London.
The nearest train station to Stonehenge is Salisbury about 9.5 miles away and then you would need to take a bus or a taxi to Stonehenge and then once there you need to pay entrance fees to get in to see the Stones. Therefore when ever travel agents get this question their common response is no this is not an efficient option.
So what can you do?
Well thankfully for the time conscious traveller, there are a lot of london to stonehenge tours that take place through many different providers. These tours will pick you up from your London Hotel and take you direct to Stonehenge and also other destinations such as Windsor, Bath and Oxford and you will also have a guide and all your entrance fees are generally included. This is one of the most time and cost efficient methods for seeing Stonehenge and is definately what most online travel agents recommend and book. There are quite a few variations of stonehenge tours out there so there is always something to suit your taste and budget.
