A celebration of life - standing amongst the towering stones, a crowd of approximately 30,000 gather every year to watch the sun rise on this magical midsummer morning. It's great to be able to stand inside the sacred circle of sarsens as our ancestors did as dawn appears over the Heel Stone. A traditional way to celebrate the longest day of the year. There's an amazing communal excitement at the solstice sunrise as the spiritual ancestry of this prehistoric temple is celebrated - with whoops of joy, drumming, horn blowing, cheering and applause...it makes you feel good to be alive. This re-enacting of an ancient ceremony brings a mystical link, stretching right back through the eons of time, producing almost a celebratory communion with our ancestors.
