The rolling green hills of Wiltshire, England, surround Salisbury Plain and enigmatic Stonehenge, the ancient circle of standing stones that has stood sentinel here for thousands of years. A symbol of human ingenuity and the mysterious forces of nature, Stonehenge is part of a much wider picture with prehistoric monuments to visit separately including the Cuckoo Stone, a lone sarsen stone a few miles away from Stonehenge. Avebury henge is the largest stone circle in Britain.
Nearby, the city of Salisbury is a great base with a stunning medieval cathedral and market square.
