See Stonehenge at dawn
By day, you could take your place in the traffic jam that regularly snakes nine miles from Salisbury on the A303. A better option (summer solstice aside) is to set your alarm so you hit the site at sunrise.

2 Walk Hadrian’s Wall
You can’t quite see it from space, but at 73 miles Hadrian’s Wall was the greatest single engineering project undertaken by the Roman Empire and is now a World Heritage Site. The country’s newest national trail – the Hadrian’s Wall Path – sweeps over the north of England’s hills and moorland.
