|Avebury at dawn - an unforgettable experience|
Limited tent space
There'll be less than one hundred tent spaces, allocated on a first come first served basis. They are expected to be in high demand. There'll be no camping available on the weekends either side of the Solstice.
We would advise anybody planning to come to celebrate the Solstice at Avebury to consider both finding accommodation in campsites nearby (listed below) and to consider visiting by public transport.
WE HOPE THE WEATHER WILL BE KIND AND WISH YOU A PEACEFUL AND CELEBRATORY SOLSTICE.
