We visited Stonehenge a couple of days ago, on the way back from Wales. It was a grey, rainy, cold and windy day and we still wanted to be there. We were only able to be at the site for about 2 minutes. The wind was extremely strong and the rain was freezing. I only managed to get this photo. I could not walk around as the wind was blasting really cold, from all directions. Was it all worth it? yes it was.
They also have a really nice, new visitor center, that opened just a month ago with a museum, a large shop and cafe serving delicious hot chocolate, awesome beef pasties and soup of the day. I did not expect to get such nice food there. So worth a visit.

Quick Trip to Stonehenge
It didn't make sense to travel to London without visiting the mysterious site of Stonehenge, however, I didn't want to spend an entire day (or an arm-and-a-leg) in the English Countryside. Fortunately, I found an "Express Tour" which was a perfect solution as the entire trip was only six hours. The air-conditioned bus also offered free Wi-Fi which was a great perk!
It was not a good day for photography. The day was cloudy yet windy; and I had only one chance to do the best I can. Today, Stonehenge remains one of the mysteries of the world with many theories and myths surrounding the ring of standing stones. Still, when in London, it is worth a visit.
