    Just makes me nostalgic! Beautiful photographs and recommendations. Though I wish I had done the walk through the woods to get to Stonehenge instead of approaching it from the usual entrance.

    Stourhead House & Gardens (National Trust) near Mere are also worth visiting whilst you’re in this area.
