Stonehenge Solstice


Jasmine G.


As a former West Country dweller, I have driven past and visited the Stonehenge World Heritage Site many times. The most memorable, however, was when I attended the Summer Solstice. Every year thousands gather from all over the UK (and beyond) to see in the longest day of the year and see out the shortest day of the year, among the Neolithic monuments.


Stonehenge is thought to be 5,000 years old! Ergo, the stones are shrouded in mystery; how did they get there? Who built it? What is the purpose? Why was it built in this specific place? How was it built? The enigmatic nature of the ancient site makes attending these occasions even more appealing and gives the Solstices a magical feel!
