If you’re looking for how to visit Stonehenge for free, keep reading this post.


Step 1: Start out on Fargo Road, in Amesbury, Wiltshire
Stonehenge is based in Amesbury which is out in the middle of the Wiltshire countryside!

If you did want to get up close to the stones, then plug   Fargo Road (Lark hill) into your Satnav.

You can no longer park up on the A303 and the ‘old’ car park I read from older reviews is now the Visitor centre.

Fargo Road connects both the pathway to Stonehenge and Woodhenge if you wanted to check that out.  You’ll know you’re in the right place when the road is blocked off and you see the sign.

Step 2: head down the gravel path   all   the way to Stonehenge

Once you’re parked up, head down the long gravel path towards Stonehenge.

If you’re not sure where the path begins, just plug it into your Google Maps from Fargo Road and follow the route. It will take around 15 minutes to reach the site.

I got lost around 4/5 times, so you don’t have to! Having not done this since I was a kid, I wasn’t sure what fields were permissible in getting to Stonehenge.

Turns out, none of them were! Most of the meadows came to dead ends of electric fences. But, my detour led me to lots of cute sheep (and unfortunately their poop).

Step 3: Go through the public pathway gate

When you get to the bottom of the gravel path, you will come to the area where the tourists are dropped off by the shuttle buses to see Stonehenge.

You obviously can’t walk through the normal entrance without a ticket, but you can walk along the public pathway for cyclists and pedestrians which is right next to it. Again, this is not illegal as it’s  public land and you can walk here free of charge.
