I would absolutely love to visit Stonehenge in person. One of those things on the bucket list that will probably never happen, but I can dream right?
Stonehenge is located in Wiltshire, England. I hate to admit it, but I spent a weekend in England once and didn’t get to see ANYTHING!
Nothing. What a sad trip of bad food and warm beer. Sorry England, I couldn’t hang with the food.
Stonehenge is one of the most famous landmarks in the UK and I didn’t even see it. It sits there on my bucket list. Archaeologists believe it was constructed anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.
Stonehenge is the site of one of the most popular summer solstice celebrations. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year. If you were to attend the celebration you would watch the sun rise behind the Heel Stone.
With the current state of the world, the live celebration has been shut down. They are asking that people not visit this year and I am sure this is hard on those that make this a yearly tradition.
Instead, for the first time EVER, they will be live-streaming the magical moments.
We have consulted widely on whether we could have proceeded safely and we would have dearly liked to host the event as per usual, but sadly in the end, we feel we have no choice but to cancel. We hope that our live stream offers an alternative opportunity for people near and far to connect with this spiritual place at such a special time of year and we look forward to welcoming everyone back next year.Nichola Tasker, the director of Stonehenge
You can watch the summer solstice at Stonehenge live on Sunday, June 21st morning, local time, so you will have to adjust this for time differences due to location and time zone. You can watch it on the English Heritage’s social media accounts.
