Summer Solstice from Stonehenge will be on livestream for the first time

Stonehenge is most visited during a specific event, the summer solstice.

In an effort to ensure social distancing is met, this year Stonehenge’s curators are planning on live streaming the momentous occasion on their social media accounts.

English Heritage cares for a variety of historic places across England, and they’ve announced that they will video the famous Heel Stone as the sun rises behind it on June 21st at 4:52 a.m. BST.

This week, the monument’s curators have announced that the first phase of Stonehenge’s reopening will begin on Saturday, June 13. Even though it will be greatly limited with only 6 staffed sites planned to reopen, English Heritage’s live stream will allow more people than ever to share in this historic ceremony.
