Most visitors to the town of Amesbury come to see the famous Stonehenge monument located over three kilometres west of the town by car hire in Amesbury, but there are many more attractions in this town in south central England.
Car rental in Amesbury is the best transportation option as most bus tours to Stonehenge allow visitors only 30 minutes to see the stones and other public transportation options are limited. The easiest places to find cheap car hire in Amesbury are the local Avis office and other independent car hire companies.
Car hire in Amesbury will quickly take visitors to the historic Stonehenge site, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site and settled since at least 8000 BC. Although Stonehenge is most famous for its huge stone monuments, more than 200 smaller monuments and artefacts have been unearthed at the site, making it England's most archaeologically rich location.
The largest stones at Stonehenge are easily seen as visitors enter the site, but an entry fee is required for a closer look. However, most smaller monuments can be seen free of charge, including the three kilometre Stonehenge Cursus, the Winterbourne Stoke Barrows exhibiting each kind of burial mound discovered in the United Kingdom, the ancient Neolithic village at Durrington Walls, and the Avenue connecting the Stonehenge monument to the Avon River. King Barrows Ridge along the Avenue provides the most spectacular Stonehenge view.
