The Summer Solstice at Stonehenge is a really mysterious time to be there. Nowadays solstice is a quiet and moving experience. Previously Wiltshire police fought inclined battles through the public who were drawn to see the sunrise on the longest day of the year at Stonehenge.
For many the impulse to land at Stonehenge in time for the Solstice is a little likes all those people drawn to the strange rock in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. English traditions, who direct Stonehenge, have set up a set of ground rules and now permit visitors to spend all night from dusk to dawn.
The environment is quiet and joyful. There is usually spontaneous music, sharing of picnics and the like and if you are in the UK for the Summer Solstice it is a wonderful way to see Stonehenge.
