More prehistoric sites near Stonehenge
First choice is undoubtedly Avebury, a larger circle of smaller stones set around a charming little village. Less than an hour’s drive north of Stonehenge, you are free to walk around them, sit outside the local pub and view them over a glass of beer or hug them at your leisure with no charge at any time of the day, night or year.
Nearby are more ancient remains, Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow.
There are also plenty of giant White Horses carved into chalk hills and prehistoric hill forts around, though the latter only involve high grassy mounds surrounded by steep rings.

The Cherhill White Horse
Not as impressive as ancient stone circles perhaps, but various White Horses canter over the Wiltshire chalk hills around Avebury and Stonehenge and are good for a brisk walk with no-problem access and great views. Apparently locals spend a lot of communal time cleaning and maintaining the White Horse – weeding, replacing eroded chalk, trimming grass etc. And not neccessarily for commercial reasons. They take pride in living near ancient art.
