    I agree Avebury is better. When I was a kid, we lived a few miles from Stonehenge and it was not fenced off. We could run around, climb on the stones (there were still a lot of fallen ones then) and even have our picnic in the circle. It's really boring now. Still a spectacular sight as you drive past on the A303.

    If you are in that area, Stourhead Gardens is worth a visit. They filmed a chunk of Pride and Prejudice there. It's NT so not cheap.

    If you want to spin a few less miles, come to Droitwich on a sunny day and have a swim in the lido.

    As a Member I think the 30 odd I pay a year is well worth it. Stourhead is one of my 'often visits' along with Dyrham, Nr Bath.

    Lacock Abbey and Village are great. Harry Potter and much more was filmed there.

    As Martin said, do look locally as well, it is amazing what you miss on your own doorstep. Look at your local tourist info site or the local council site. We had family over from Canada and we went to all kinds of places we had never thought of as they were looking with touristy eyes.
