Summer Solstice at Stonehenge - A Wild and Magical Night

By May 25, 2009

Follow me on:

stonehenge The Summer Solstice, the longest day (or the shortest night, depending upon your point of view) in the Northern Hemisphere, is less than a month away and it's a very special time at Stonehenge. It is the one night of the year when visitors are:
  • allowed to spend the entire night at Stonehenge
  • allowed to park free
  • given free access to the monument itself.
English Heritage, custodians of England's iconic ancient monument, have just published the conditions of entry - along with sunset and sunrise times - for this year's Summer Solstice on June 20 and 21.

Leading up to Glastonbury, an overnight at Stonehenge might be just the great New Age experience you're looking for. And, if you aren't all that New Agey, just think - what a great place to camp out! You can tell your grandchildren.
