Stonehenge Summer Solstice


Sunrise at Stonehenge

This year the Summer Solstice takes place on Saturday 20th June. The Summer Solstice marks the longest day in the year - the day when we have the most amount of sunlight.


For thousands of years people have worshipped and celebrated the Summer Solstice. Many monuments around the world were designed to mark this day - including Britain's famous Stonehenge.


I have created a video which explains about the connection between Stonehenge and the solstice (both the Summer and the Winter Solstice). You can view this video at the bottom of this post - I hope you find it interesting!


Sadly due to the coronavirus it will not be possible to visit Stonehenge this year to witness and commemorate the Summer Solstice. The sunset and sunrise at Stonehenge however is being streamed live on Facebook. For more information please see my post on the Bath Insider Tours Facebook page by clicking here.
