Review | Summer Solstice 2015

Watching the sun rise above one the UK’s oldest landmarks, I can think of worse ways to celebrate the start of summer.

On June 20th, over 20,000 people will be making the journey to ancient prehistoric site of Stonehenge, spending the night gathered in celebration of the bringing of summer, surrounded by the beautiful Wiltshire countryside and the 5000 year old monument.
