A £27 million project to modernise facilities at Stonehenge will be opened tomorrow after decades of planning. More than a million people flock to the popular ancient monument in Wiltshire each year.

The new facilities are housed in a pair of single-storey "pods", sitting beneath an undulating canopy that mimics the rolling plains nearby.

Further work to decommission the existing facilities, built in 1968, and returning the car park to grass will start in the New Year.

There is a 360-degree Stand in the Stones experience, using state-of-the-art laser scans, to allow visitors to experience summer and winter solstices.
