Summer Solstice 2018: Thousands celebrated longest day of the year at Stonehenge

On the summer solstice, the sun rises behind the Heel Stone, the ancient entrance to the stone circle, and sunlight is channelled into the centre of the monument.

 

It is believed that solstices have been celebrated at Stonehenge for thousands of years.

 

The site holds special significance for members of the Druid and Pagan community, who perform rituals and celebrations at the summer and winter solstices.
