Love how communal this stone circle is. Plenty of people strolling, walking dogs and picnicking. Great shops around it as well.

A magic place. I have been several time, and will keep going, Usually not too crowded , and big enough to feel peaceful. You can walk through the stones, touch them (unlike Stonehenge which is fenced) and enjoy an ancient walk,
