2 11 2020

Due to the coronavirus, English Heritage has said it will be closing Stonehenge until the 3rd December 2020

Statement from English Heritage:

Stonehenge is closed temporarily because we cannot open in a way that is compliant with government guidelines. We look forward to re-opening as soon the restrictions are lifted, and you can still book for visits from Dec 3rd. While we’re closed, we’ll still be bringing you all the fascinating stories of Stonehenge and you can even take our virtual tour from your sofa!

If you made a booking that now falls within our closure period, you’ll be automatically refunded within 10 working days. Thank you to everyone who has visited us while we’ve been open, as a charity we really do value your support and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay safe!

English Heritage will be keeping a selection of their sites open for local visitors and Members during November. Please do bear in mind the government’s latest advice on essential journeys when planning your visit.

People with pre-booked Stonehenge tickets which are cancelled will be automatically refunded. Vist the English Heriteage Face Book page for more details.

Official Guidance for Heritage Locations 

Some heritage locations can still be visited because they are outside, as long as the current social distancing rules are observed. These include historic parks, gardens, landscapes, and ruins and monuments open to the elements, even where these are paid-for attractions. You should only visit them with:

  • the people you live with
  • your support bubble
  • or, when on your own, one person from another household

Children under five, as well as disabled people dependent on round-the-clock care, are not counted towards the limit on two people meeting outside.

Roofed historic buildings and fully-enclosed spaces will be closed, although their attached grounds, including car parks, toilets and outdoor play areas, can remain open. 

U.K National restrictions begin in England from 5th November. Find out about the new restrictions and what you can and cannot do. Until 5th November, follow the local restrictions for your area.
