Stonehenge Winter Solstice – December 21, 2009

A visit to Stonehenge is truly a magical experience… whenever you go – rain or shine. 

Stonehenge draws millions of visitors from around the world, especially during the Summer and Winter Solstices – the shortest and the longest days of the year – when the sun rises in perfect alignment to the circle of stones. It is theorized that Stonehenge was built to mark these two events, which would have enabled people to chart the changing seasons.

This year, Winter Solstice takes place on December 21st .

Next year, Summer Solstice takes place on June 21, 2010.

Summer and Winter Solstice at Stonehenge

Take a Fun Day Trip to Stonehenge ( from London) and include visits to Windsor Castle, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, Winchester and The Cotswolds. We combined our visit to Stonehenge with a few days in Bath and had a wonderful time. Book an exclusive Private Viewing of Stonehenge. Step inside the”inner circle of stones” – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Note: Tours sell out quickly.
