This year, due to Covid-19, English Heritage are instructing people to STAY AWAY from Stonehenge and not celebrate the summer Solstice in their usual way. English Heritage will instead be live streaming the occasion for free on their social media channels starting at 8.41pm this evening.

Built over 5,000 years ago, at Stonehenge on the summer solstice, the sun rises behind the Heel Stone in the north-east part of the horizon and its first rays shine into the heart of Stonehenge.
Stonehenge will open to the public on 4 July. You now need to book your timed tickets in advance. They have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation.
BOOK YOUR TICKETS HERE.
Glastonbury are also hosting a virtual event on Sunday 21 June, to live stream the Summer Solstice sunrise followed by a multifaith ceremony and family activities, including singing, crafts and music.
