A visit to Stonehenge is a truly 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, Summer Solstice takes place on June 21, 2010.
Winter Solstice takes place on December 21, 2010 .
Summer and Winter Solstices 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 – during sunrise or sunset. Step inside the”inner circle of stones” – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The Private Viewing of Stonehenge Tour includes a visit to Lacock, one of England’s most picturesque villages, dating back to the Saxon era. Lacock was the setting for many movies and TV dramas, including Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” and “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.” Explore the beautiful Georgian city of Bath (Jane Austen’s birthplace). Visit Bath Abbey and the magnificent Roman Baths. Note: Tours sell out quickly, so be sure to book early.
