Stonehenge, UK

 

Probably the most outstanding part of my parents' trip to London in May was our visit to Stonehenge. It very almost didn't happen due to time constraints (imposed by a prospective Gumtree sale of all things) but we decided to throw caution to the wind and make it work and I'm so happy we did. Since our last trip in 2007, Stonehenge has stepped up its game (and ticket prices) immensely with a bustling visitor centre, café and busses operating to and from the site. A far cry from the highway afterthought it once was. 

The actual stones are fascinating and one can't help but be captivated by the ancient secrets they hold. My favourite part of the exhibition were the personal photos from holiday makers in the 1950's posing on the rocks before the area became protected. I wonder what they'd make of the attraction these days.
