Watching the sunrise above one of the UK’s oldest landmarks, I can think of worse ways to celebrate the start of summer than the Stone Henge Summer Solstice.
On June 20th, over 20,000 people will be making the journey to the 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.
Arriving at 7 pm, myself along with somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000 will spend all night surrounded by the druid/New-age celebration of the sun reaching its highest point above the northern hemisphere, watching the sunset and rise again along with some open-minded and hardy souls, including fellow bloggers and good friends Kaori & Ella.
Entry to this festival is free, along with parking at the festival car-park, while food and hot beverages are available throughout the night.
