Stonehenge Stone Circle access still worth it?

Jump to last reply

Oops--forgot to tag for UK...

Our family (w/2 young adult daughters) visiting mid-August and want to see Stonehenge. Have read that the new visitor center and removal of fence etc. will improve the visitor experience but am wondering if the Stone Circle access is still enough better that it's worth making plans around. They only have the early morning access left (6:15 and 7:30 am). We'll be staying in Bath (with a car), so we'd have to get up really early and miss our B&B's scrummy breakfast to get there in time. The alternative would be to do it the morning we leave from London on our way to Bath, but I assume that would be even harder (longer drive) to get there in time. How much cooler is it to be there before the crowds arrive? I've heard from several people that the old touristy experience seeing the stones from a distance through a fence was pretty disappointing, but maybe the new way is good enough. Thoughts welcome.
