Stonehenge is one of the most famous tourist sites in the country and it is within easy reach of Bath.
The site was used by our ancestors from 10,000 years ago and there are many theories as to its purpose; a giant calendar, a place of healing, an auditorium, a temple, or perhaps a landing pad for alien spaceships! Avebury is another ancient stone circle nearby, not as famous but well worth a visit.
