In the neighbouring county of Wiltshire, is one of the wonders of the world and the best known prehistoric monument in Europe, Stonehenge.
Constructed between 3000-2000BC, Stonehenge is a feat of engineering. The monument’s use is shrouded in mystery, with ideas of its use ranging from a place of religious worship to an ancient burial ground.
Stonehenge, located on Salisbury Plain, is just 20 minutes’ drive from The Hawk Inn. You can explore the Stone Circle on foot and enter the Neolithic Houses to discover more about Neolithic life. Visit the world-class exhibition to view over 250 archaeological objects and walk around the visitor’s centre, where you can experience what it might be like at Stonehenge during winter or summer solstice. There is also a visitor’s café where you can relax and take in the countryside views with some delicious locally sourced food.
