Accessibility at Stonehenge

Stone Henge

Stonehenge dates back to 3000BC and is the best-known pre-historic monument in Europe, providing a fascinating insight into our Neolithic ancestors. A visit to Stonehenge will allow you to explore the ancient burial ground on foot, before discovering the Neolithic Houses, giving a glimpse into the tools and objects of the Neolithic people.

Facilities for Deafblind Visitors

With 250 objects on display, English Heritage has made considerable effort to ensure the attraction can be enjoyed by all visitors. As such, there are audio and audio descriptive tours available, as well as a tour transcript. A number of the exhibits on display are also tactile and feature subtitles, BSL and a hearing loop together with large print exhibition text on request. If you would like to bring a guide dog with you, water bowls can be provided, and the team also has volunteers who can assist you and signpost quiet spaces if required.

What’s On?

An interactive map also allows you to discover the environment at Stonehenge: how it was, how it is now and what it will become in years to come.
