Stonehenge is the UK's most iconic landmark

275x250.jpgMegalithic monument Stonehenge has been voted the UK's most iconic landmark by children.

The 5,000 year-old structure beat off competition from Hadrian's Wall, Blackpool Tower and the White Cliffs of Dover in the poll of over 2,500 children.

Other landmarks liked by the youngsters included Antony Gormley's Angel of the North and the London Eye.

A spokesperson for Travelodge, which organised the poll, said it was good that young Brits were keen to preserve Great Britain's heritage… though they were probably just looking at it on Google Earth.
