The ancient landmark of Stonehenge has come second in a poll of the nation's 'must see destinations' for families. It was only beaten by the Lake District. In the voting Brighton Pier was second place where parents were most likely to have enjoyed with their children.

The Lake District was voted the most desirable destination with 61% of parents rating it `must see'. Stonehenge and Cornwall came second and third respectively.

The survey of parents with children under 16 was carried out by Freedomtogo.co.uk, a campaign spearheaded by the National Caravan Council and backed by The Caravan Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club.

While the Lake District ranks as the most desirable location, only 41% have actually been. Parents are more likely to have enjoyed Cornwall (50%) and Brighton Pier (49%) with their children.

Parents choose to holiday in the UK over trips abroad for the natural beauty of the region, to get on the beach and to be active as a family.
