The Gorsedd is not a Neo-Pagan organisation, but a non-religious academy for Welsh culture. Meso-Druid and Neo-Druid organisations draw a lot of inspiration from them:
http://www.gorsedd.cymru

This one emerged in 1909-1912 (though their mythic history goes further back), and OBOD split from them in 1964:

The Loyal Arthurian Warband has been involved in the public debate about public access to Stonehenge:
http://www.warband.org.uk

The Glastonbury Order of Druids (very inclusive):
http://glastonburyorderofdruids.com

The Druid Network is not an order, but a network - the first Druid one to be acknowledged as a religious one by British authorities:
