The new visitor centre at Stonehenge finally opens to the public today.
Until now, people visiting the stones have had to put up with temporary cabins that were put there in the 1960s.
Now a centre costing £27 million pounds has been built.
More than a million people flock to the ancient monument every year.
The new centre is a mile and a half to the west of the stones.Tourists will able to use a 10 minute shuttle bus or walk to the monument
A £27 million project to modernise facilities at Stonehenge will be opened tomorrow - after decades of planning. More than a million visitors come to the ancient monument in Wiltshire each year but up to now, roads, traffic and inadequate facilities have got in the way of their enjoyment.
Tomorrow that will change.
Our pictures show the Visitor Centres before and after but bear in mind that they are not on the same site.
It is a question that has haunted archaeologists and historians for generations. Why was Stonehenge built where it was?
A new dig a mile away from the World Heritage site has unearthed one of Britain's largest ever stone-age settlements.
And the people behind the project say it may help explain why the stones are where they are.
Our Wiltshire reporter Robert Murphy has been to the site.
They're being called Britain's original crown jewels and they're considerably older than the famous collection in the Tower of London.
The largest collection of Bronze Age gold to be put on show opened today at Wiltshire Museum in Devizes. Robert Murphy reports
4,000 year old jewellery has gone on display in Wiltshire. It was found in a grave near Stonehenge 200 years ago and is being displayed at the newly-opened Wiltshire Museum in Devizes.
Museum director, David Dawson says they are among the first metal ever used in England.
The largest-ever collection of early Bronze Age gold ever to be put together has gone on display for the first time today. The artefacts date from the 'golden age' of Stonehenge: 3000 to 2000 BC. The exhibition features 500 objects and can be viewed at the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes.
The new visitor centre at Stonehenge will finally open in December, just three days before this year's winter solstice. English Heritage is spending £27million on improvements to the site.
Today we got the chance to have a look around and see how building work is going. Not everyone is happy with it though, as our reporter Robert Murphy has been finding out.
