The 2014 Summer Solstice, Stonehenge

 

SWP_Summer-Solstice2014_001SWP_Summer-Solstice2014_001 Approximately 36,000 people watched the sun rise over Stonehenge, in Wiltshire at 04.52 this morning to celebrate the start of the longest day.

This number is about 15,000 up on 2013 due mainly to the solstice falling on a Saturday morning and the good weather that had been forecast.

Visitors were not disappointed as we were treated to a beautiful sunrise over the magnificent stones, well worth getting up early for!

We've included a couple of pictures here and click to see the full image gallery.
