The ultimate winter toolkit for older people

Perfect winter activities for you and your grandchildren this winter

Historical visits are great for learning experiences for both of you

When thinking about historical sites in the UK, one of the first that comes to mind is certainly Stonehenge. This ancient site is a must if you’ve not been before, even if it’s just to say you have seen it in person and to provide great memories for your grandkids. The team at Visit Stonehenge explained why it is such a good place for an educational and fun day out: “A visit to Stonehenge is a great experience starting with the visitor centre with its informative displays and immersive circular cinema room. It feels as though you’re standing right in the middle of the stone circle and you can see exactly how the stones are lined up with the summer solstice.
“In the museum itself, you can find out more about the site’s history and how Stonehenge has changed over time.
“Outside of the centre, there is a reconstructed Neolithic village and try pulling one of the stones to check your strength. Time to board the land train to visit Stonehenge Circle about a mile away. You can sense the mystery of the Stones and the awe of the site. Well worth a visit.”
