Thousands expected at the 'Stonehenge Summer Solstice' celebrations

THOUSANDS of revellers are expected to descend upon Stonehenge for this year’s Summer Solstice.

Sunrise will occur at about 4.45am on June 21, which is the longest day of the year.
English Heritage is opening Stonehenge to the public from 7pm on Monday, June 20, to 8am the following day.

The Solstice car park, just off the A303, will open from 7pm on Monday, June 20, with last admission at 6am on Tuesday, June 21.

Access to the stones and car park will be free of charge but organisers have advised people to use public transport where possible.

Wilts and Dorset bus company will be running a regular service from Salisbury railway station, via the bus station, from 6.30pm on the Monday evening through to 1.15am on Tuesday.

A return service will operate frequently from 4am to 9.45am on Tuesday – with buses stopping at any recognised bus stop along the Amesbury route.  I belive the Stonehenge Tour Company are offering their usuual transport from London

Have a great Solstice, please respect the site.
