It's hoped that  the  Summer Solstice celebrations at Stonehenge return again in 2023. Please note that a high volume of traffic is anticipated in the Stonehenge area on the evening of 20th June. The car park is signposted, enter off the A303 from the roundabout.

There's likely to be casual entertainment from samba bands & drummers but no amplified music is allowed. When you visit Stonehenge for the Solstice, please remember it is a Sacred Place to many and should be respected.

English Heritage will also ensure that small, pre-booked groups from the pagan and druid community can gather on the days around the Summer Solstice to mark this important moment in their calendar.
