Stonehenge UK Solstice Tours
Spring Equinox Tours


Druids, pagans and revellers gathered at dawn by Stonehenge’s ancient stones to mark the vernal equinox, the official beginning of springtime. Twice a year, the earth’s axis is angled so that the world gets an equal amount of daylight and night, a highly-significant event in the pagan calendar.

At the spring equinox, the sun rises exactly in the east, travels through the sky for 12 hours and then sets exactly in the west. All over the world, day and night are of equal length.

The small group 'non-obtrusive' nature of this tour means you can have a real authentic experience, a great photo opportunity and valuable insight into ancient Britain. Tour information

Stonehenge Summer Solstice Tour


Solstice, or Litha means a stopping or standing still of the sun. It is the longest day of the year and the time when the sun is at its maximum elevation. This date has had spiritual significance for thousands of years as humans have been amazed by the great power of the sun. 

When celebrating midsummer, Pagans draw on diverse traditions. In England thousands of Pagans and non-Pagans go to places of ancient religious sites such as Stonehenge and see the sun rising on the first morning of summer. Celebrate the 2020 summer solstice at Stonehenge on a tour from London.

Autumn Equinox
Stonehenge Autumn Equinox Tour


It is believed by some that Stonehenge was erected with the supervision of astronomer-priests as part of their astrological calendar so that people knew the optimal time to breed cattle, plant and harvest.

Mabon is the first day of autumn and the changing of the guard with the seasons and it usually falls on or around September 23rd. It is one of two days in the year when there is 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night and is the time of year that the harvesting of crops happens, preparing for the winter months ahead.

For Druids Pagans, this is one of the major celebrations of the year. Celebrate the 2018 Autumn Equinox at Stonehenge on a tour from London. Tour information

Autumn Equinox
Druid Celebration


Modern-day Druids, pagans and other revellers gather at Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain to celebrate the first day of winter – otherwise known as the winter solstice, the winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon that marks the longest night and the shortest day of the year. This is caused by the tilt of the Earth’s axis, when the North Pole is tilted furthest from the Sun.

Many cultures hold holidays, festivals, gatherings rituals and other celebrations during winter solstice. Druids, pagans and revellers descend on Stonehenge each year to watch the sunrise. Celebrate the 2018 Winter at Stonehenge on this exclusive tour from London. Tour information

Winter Solstice
Stonehenge special access tours for private groups


This is a rare opportunity to visit one of the most popular and mystifing Prehistoric sites in the world. The private access tour is an early morning (sunrise) or evening (sunset) event, closed off to the general public where you will be able to walk amongst the stones and stand within the stone circle!


Normal viewing only permits access from the path that surrounds the circle. Stonehenge dates from 3100BC, and you will be walking where very few people have access. Your guide will explain some of the theories behind this amazing feat of Prehistoric construction.

Solstice Events U.K are often able to get permission from the English Heritage for 'special access' tours for individuals and private groups. These can be sunset or sunrise times. Tour information
