What You Can Expect at the Solstice Celebrations
The summer solstice (or Litha) occurs when the Sun reaches its northernmost latitude, giving the most hours of daylight throughout the year. Traditionally, the event marks the first day of summer, and is celebrated all around the world. One of the most legendary solstice celebrations is held at Stonehenge because of its spiritual significance to druids, pagans and sun worshipers. So, join the crowds who flock to the ancient site and celebrate the 2015 summer solstice during your sunset or sunrise viewing.
The small group 'non-obtrusive' nature of this tour means you can have a real authentic experience, a great photo opportunity and valuable insight into ancient Britain.
