Visitor Access - Disability Arrangements - Stonehenge Disability Video Guide

I am a wheelchair user. Will I be able to get to the Stone Circle? The visitor centre and the shuttle service are fully accessible to people in wheelchairs. The path from the visitor shuttle stop to Stonehenge is around 200m and is suitable for wheelchair use. There is a slight gradient. Please talk to a member of staff if you need any help. The grass paths around the monument are accessible by wheelchair, weather permitting.
I cannot walk very far and need to sit down at regular intervals. Will I be able to do this? 
There's a limited amount of seating at intervals around the whole site. For information or assistance, please talk to a member of staff. There are wheelchairs available on site for use on a first-come-first-served basis.

To help you get the most out of your visit we have prepared this video which you can watch before you come to Stonehenge. You can also bring a companion or carer in for free to help you enjoy your visit. Please just let us know on arrival that you are bringing a carer with you.

The main areas - in and around the car park, visitor centre and the Stone Circle - are accessible by wheelchair via tarmac and grass paths (subject to weather). However, there are no paths in the wider grass landscape.
The visitor shuttle service is accessible for wheelchairs and access onto the shuttle service is step-free.
There are accessible toilets at the visitor centre, including an adult changing area, and an accessible emergency-only toilet close to the Stones.
