Stonehenge in Salisbury, England

Here’s a throwback post to my trip in the UK in 2016. On one of our days in England, we visited Stonehenge in a 1-day tour package.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England. Stonehenge is regarded as a British cultural icon. Stonehenge has been a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site since 1986.

It consists of an outer ring of vertical sarsen standing stones, each around 13 feet (4.0 m) high, seven feet (2.1 m) wide, and weighing around 25 tons, topped by connecting horizontal lintel stones. Inside is a ring of smaller bluestones. Inside these are free-standing trilithons, two bulkier vertical sarsens joined by one lintel.
