Visiting Stonehenge for theSummer Solstice 2017 - Be Prepared, Plan Your Visit And Stay Safe

 


Please note that the site will close at 15:00 on Tuesday 20 June with last normal day admissions at 13:00, so that we can prepare for Summer Solstice Managed Open Access. Stonehenge is closed on Wednesday 21 June and will re-open at 09:00 on Thursday 22 June. 

English Heritage is pleased to provide free Managed Open Access to Stonehenge for Summer solstice 2017 and ask that if you are planning to join us for this peaceful and special occasion that you read the Conditions of Entry and the information provided on the following pages before deciding whether to come. These are written to ensure enjoyment and safety for everyone attending summer solstice at Stonehenge.
   
Please note to reduce risk to those attending and to the monument itself, alcohol is not allowed in the monument field during summer solstice. 

Following recent terrorist related incidents across the UK, additional security measures will be in place at Summer Solstice this year. 
We are working closely with Wiltshire Police to ensure the safety of all visitors and, as a result, only small bags (approx 30cm x 25cm x 15cm) will be allowed into the Monument Field and searches will be conducted. 
We strongly advise you to only bring essential items and thank you in advance for your patience.
