A day trip to Stonehenge and nearby towns Amesbury and Salisbury is a must-do if you're in the area. Don't take the sight-seeing bus - it's loud and boring. Instead rent a car or walk the 2 kilometers from Amesbury to Stonehenge.

One of the many burial mounds that surround Stonehenge. It's a nice walk  if the weather is good.

Two more burial mounds in the distance.


A swan on the Avon river, we passed this on 45 min. walk back to Amesbury from Stonehenge.
