Five Preparation Tips for visiting Stonehenge:
The first tip that I have for you is to leave as early as possible in the day. This will help you avoid the craziness of the tourist rush. My second tip is learn as much as you can about Stonehenge before visiting. Understanding the history of the landmark could help you enjoy visiting it more. Another tip is to bring your camera so that you can capture this lifetime experience. My fourth tip is to wear a jacket that can withstand high winds and possible rain. If there is one thing that tourists should know about England, is that rain can occur frequently. Lastly, use common sense and be respectful of this historic monument.
Some notes on my personal experience visiting England:
I visited England two years ago. I was a student that went to London to study theatre. Based on my personal experience in the country, I would recommend tourists to be conscious about tourist traps and to learn about places that you are planning on visiting before you travel. In addition, be aware that pickpockets can target tourists.
