  • The history centre has limited parking outside but beware if you park in the pay and display next to the history centre as even disabled drivers have to pay. The history centre contains a surprising number of exhibits considering its size but considering the amount of history in the local area its perhaps not that surprising. The volunteers in the museum have an amazing knowledge of the local history and seem able to field any question thrown at them. There is no charge for admission to the history centre but donations are much appreciated.
  • Archaeological and photographic history of the oldest inhabited area of England. Detailed (and numerous) auroc teeth, pictures and stone tools. Section on air history (it started in England here) and if you're quick a WW2 Spitfire expert on hand to share his stories. Donation entry and free parking - this is a must visit to balance the Stonehenge experience. Great local enthusiast staff.
