Iwant to go to stonehenge,i am traveling from Dublin and only have 2 days the end of Jan so whats the best way to travel??
How you get to Stonehenge will depend on what else you want to do with your time and where you want to stay. Salisbury is the gateway town to Stonehenge and you can get there from Dublin by various routes.
One option would be to fly from Dublin to Southampton with Flybe, then catch a train directly from Southampton to Salisbury (takes between 30 and 50 mins, depending on which train you catch). At Salisbury, you can pick up tour buses or public buses for the 30 minute journey out to Stonehenge.
Another would be to fly from Dublin to one of the London airports (Heathrow or London City would be the most convenient) and then catch a train from Waterloo to Salisbury (journey time about 80 minutes). Aer Lingus and BMI fly Dublin to Heathrow, CityJet fly to Dubin to London City. National Express also has a coach service from Heathrow to Salisbury.
You could also fly Ryanair from Dublin to Bristol and then catch a train from Bristol to Salisbury (takes between about 70 and 90 mins).
If you wanted a bit of variety you could either stay in Bristol itself or Bath then travel down to Salisbury by train to pick up the shuttle bus to Stonehenge.
There are a few travel companies that do full/1/2 day guided tours from Bath to Stonehenge by minibus that aren't too pricey and get rave reviews (scarper Tours and Mad Max) - you might prefer that if you are travelling alone and fancy a bit of company.
Also, no-one has mentioned flying to Bouremouth Airport - with Ryanair - then airport bus to Bournemouth, then Bournemouth to Salisbury.
On balance the Southampton Airport / South West Trains is the best (and possibly cheapest) option
