Hey folk, this year for the first time I'm going to head down to Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice. I've never been before but have always wanted to. I just want to enjoy a few days away in the country with likeminded people, vibe from the energy there, get away from townlife for a bit and watch the Sun rise gloriously over the horizon. I know that there are a lot of disrespectful people and people getting drunk and such and its not what it used to be, I'm expecting this, but I've always wanted to go. I'm going alone, and I know the solstice is not until the 20th but I was thinking of travelling down on the 18th. I was wondering though, would people be there by this point or would I be alone? Would the camp ground be open by this time and would many people be camping?
And on that note, is there place to camp for free by stonehenge? Is it an easy to find campsite? Is it open before/after the solstice?
Any info greatly appreciated, as I said I've never been before.
