Perhaps one of the most recognisable historical landmarks in the UK, Stonehenge is a must-see for anyone who hasn’t visited before. This prehistoric stone circle was suggested to be a religious site, though the intentions of its build were never known. Stonehenge was created in multiple stages, dating back to 3,100 BC and has been a legally protected Scheduled Ancient Monument since 1882.
Folklore suggests it was built by the ancient sorcerer Merlin, known from Arthurian legends, whilst other sources stated the stones were ruins of a Roman temple.
