If you are staying in Amesbury and plan to visit the famous stone circle then this short guide show you how to get from Amesbury to Stonehenge and the new visitor centre.

Driving From Amesbury to Stonehenge

For visitors to Amesbury that wish to get to Stonehenge by car, drive to the Countess Roundabout at the A303 and head West. Drive along the A303 until you reach the Longbarrow roundabout, follow the signs to the Stonehenge visitor centre which is located just off of the A360 close to Airman's Corner.

There are both coach and car parks with a shuttle that runs to Stonehenge.

The nearest postal address for the Stonehenge visitor centre is Nr Shrewton, Wiltshire and the postcode for the Stonehenge visitor centre is SP4 7DE

There is not a bus from Amesbury to Stonehenge but there is the Stonehenge Tour Bus that departs from Salisbury and travels via Old Sarum. Advanced booking is required for visits from 1 Feb 2014 as entry to Stonehenge will be managed through a timed ticket system

Last admission to Stonehenge is 2 hours before the advertised closing time on that day. For more details about visiting Stonehenge please visit the official English Heritage website page for Stonehenge

Walking to Amesbury to Stonehenge

It is possible to walk from Amesbury to Stonehenge but walking boots may be useful if it's been raining.

You can walk from the centre of Amesbury along the Countess Road (A345) up to the roundabout at the A303 and use a pedestrian underpass that is situated on the Eastern side.

This will bring you out close to the Travelodge where you then proceed up the countess Road. There is a footpath about 300M up the road on the left which will take you to Stonehenge. For more specific details refer to Google Maps or refer to OS Landranger Map 184 for more details.

A taxi to Stonehenge

If you do not have access to transport and you don't fancy walking to Stonehenge then your best bet will be a take a taxi. If you're staying at a hotel or B&B then they will be able to organise a taxi for you. I wouldn't think that a taxi from Amesbury to Stonehenge would cost no more than about £5 in each direction.
