The summer solstice has a particular significance at Stonehenge. A vertical pole at the site would cast shadows from sun up to sun down in a straight line this one day of the year. The arrangement of stones and earlier pits (which may have contained wooden poles) suggest the site may have been some kind of astronomical calendar.
I was fortunate to be able to visit Stonehenge on a day trip from London on the eve of the summer solstice. A large gathering, including modern day Druids, was expected that evening and at sunrise the next morning.
The majority of the people in this panorama are listening to audio devices explaining the history of the megalithic monument, not talking on cellphones as you might assume.
