Large numbers of visitors at Stonehenge in Wiltshire over the Bank holiday weekend made it the site's busiest Easter for five years.
Stonehenge is English Heritage's most visited site
More than 18,000 people flocked to the stones, a 23% increase in visitor numbers compared to Easter 2003.
Peter Carson, English Heritage's head of Stonehenge, said: "Its appeal can be attributed to people's ever increasing interest in heritage and history."
More than 750,000 people visit the site a year, half from overseas.
Malcolm Bell, chief executive of South West Tourism said: "The West is renowned for its history and heritage, and high profile sites like Stonehenge are a major draw for visitors."
