Gather around the centuries-old stone circle as equinox dawns. Bring a torch and arrive at this prehistoric settlement before sunrise: once the sun's up, the festivities begin. Expect to find Druids, witches and plenty of flower crowns - not those polyester excuses you might see come June when Glastonbury Festival rocks up, but frothy, all-natural masterpieces - at the monument, as well as in the nearby towns of Salisbury and Amesbury later in the day. A ragtag bunch of people from all backgrounds typically gather: some chant, which is perhaps a bit much if you don't identify as a full-on Pagan. We recommend bringing your dog (or borrowing one) and taking a long lap of the plains before settling down for a bountiful lunch at The Chapter House.
