A trip to Stonehenge

My husband and I are planing on taking a trip around England with our 3 year old.

I was wondering how many days do we need to see the Stonehenge area and if there is anything else worthwhile to see?

Where is the best place to stay?

Do you plan to rent a car and drive or use public transport only?

We stayed in Salisbury for three nights and enjoyed it very much. Consider that as a base.

Salisbury itself (Cathedral, Iron Age fort, museums), Stonehenge, Avebury, Longleat and its Safari Park , the New Forest, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Stourhead, Paultons Park (the home of Peppa Pig World!)

one to 3 days depending on how long your overall journey is and what else you want to do. Agree that Salisbury is the obvious choice and your son would love the Lions of Longleat or Peppa Pig World.

to see Stonehenge you will need no more than a day there can be many things to see around the Stonehenge area but it depends how much you are in to history and how long you want to look at a field for avebury is good and in easy reach by car from Stonehenge as said by other posters there are many other things to see and do but they are away from Stonehenge peppa pig world is at paultons park near Southampton and is really a all day thing many rides for all ages longleat is near Warminster and again is a all day thing Stonehenge paultons park and longleat are all within easy reach of Salisbury by car

there are many things to see in Salisbury like the cathedral old sarum museums not really great for a 3 year old but you could go to clown about Salisbury its a soft play place good for a three year old for a hour or two
