Each year on the 21 June visitors from around the world gather at Stonehenge overnight to mark the summer solstice and to see the sunrise above the stones. At dawn the central Altar stone aligns with the Slaughter stone, Heel stone and the rising sun to the northeast.

The Summer Solstice is the most important day of the year at Stonehenge and a truly magical time to be there. It's an ad hoc celebration that brings together England's New Age Tribes (neo-druids, neo-pagans, Wiccans) with ordinary families, tourists, travelers and party people - 1000's of them!

For many the impulse to arrive at Stonehenge in time for the Solstice is a little like all those people drawn to the strange rock in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It's akin to a spiritual experience. Anyone who has witnessed the crowd become silent as the sky begins to brighten can attest to that.

Steve will drive down on the Tuesday afternoon, where we will experinece the Stonehenge Summer Solstice. Then drive back on the Wednesday morning after a full english breaky.

Make sure you wear, and bring with you, warm clothing as even in June the weather at Stonehenge can be very cold and damp. A small umbrella might be a good idea, although do be aware that large umbrellas are not permitted.
