SPECIAL shuttle buses will be taking people to Stonehenge this year to mark the Winter Solstice.

Salisbury Reds is running its 333 service between 6am and 7.25am from Salisbury New Canal on Monday (December 22) with buses returning from Stonehenge between 8.10am and 8.30am.

The service will also stop at Salisbury Railway Station and Salisbury Street in Amesbury.

“Buses will leave Salisbury from early on Monday morning, to give customers plenty of time to reach the stones and mark the Winter Solstice in their own way,” said Salisbury Reds communications manager, Nikki Honer.

“We already work closely with English Heritage at Stonehenge - providing buses to the location for those wishing to leave their cars behind - but this is a very special occasion.

“The aim is to make it as easy as possible for people to come and take in the magical atmosphere here early on Monday morning.”

Tickets cost £10 for an adult return. These can also be used to travel back to Salisbury on the official tour bus for those wishing to leave the site later on. Child tickets (between 5 and 14 years) cost £5 return.
