When you go to England, what’s the one tourist spot that everyone tells you to visit? Why, Stonehenge, of course! Last weekend I got the amazing opportunity to not only visit, but take an amazing tour of the stones with some other interns.
We took a coach bus from Embarkment station in London directly to Stonehenge where we proceeded to get on another bus from the coaching area to the stones.
We didn’t hit any rain, but it was quite cold when we arrived in the field! Luckily my Canadian roots prepared me well. Wearing three layers under my coat along with hat, gloves, and scarf, kept me bundled!
I’m glad I had a friend with me who who I could do impromptu photo ops with—the possibilities are endless with the beautiful backdrop.
We had a tour guide show us the best places to stand for pictures, and had a little help from the photographer she brought along. For information on tickets, check out English Heritage.
It’s always fun to spend 15 minutes trying to get the lining up just right so it looks like you are lifting or touching the stones! The poor tourists around us politely waiting to cross, while we urge them to go ahead, as we’ll ‘be a while’, were priceless.
There was something special about being so close to something so large and mysterious. Its complete isolation makes a powerful impact!
Have any of you ever been or want to go to Stonehenge? Let me know what you think!
