Wonders of the World


Stonehenge, Wiltshire, UK

The prehistoric monument is Britain's most incredible wonder and arguably the most mystical rock formation in the world. Set just outside of Salisbury, Wiltshire, one of the UK's most historic towns, it was built in several stages. An early henge monument was built about 5,000 years ago, with the stone circle erected around 2500 BC. The as-yet-unsolved mystery of how the giant stones came to be transported to the Salisbury Plains only adds to its intrigue. Alongside the nearby prehistoric remains of Avebury, Stonehenge earned its UNESCO World Heritage status in 1986.
