Summer Solstice house prices rise 25% above the UK average

This Saturday marks the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year, which would traditionally bring crowds of 10,000 strong flocking to Stonehenge to celebrate.

Unfortunately, like most things, this has been put on hold due to the Coronavirus.

However, research from estate agent comparison site, GetAgent, has found that Neolithic stone circles may still bring cause for celebration, for those living in the local area, at least.

GetAgent.co.uk looked at house prices in 11 areas home to a famous stone circle and found property prices sit at £290,262, 25% more than the current UK average.

While arguably the most famous, Stonehenge sits mid-table with homes currently selling for £301,973 in Wiltshire’s SP4 postcode.

The most prestigious prehistoric property pocket is in fact, the Rollright Stones in the OX7 postcode of the Cotswolds, with an average house price of £479,683; 107% more than the UK average.

While not far from StoneHenge, the lesser-known stone circle of Avebury Circle in Wiltshire’s SN8 postcode is also some 104% more expensive than the UK average when it comes to property prices. The average home here will set you back £473,971.

The Arbor Low stone circle in Derbyshire is the only other Neolithic attraction to see local house prices breach the £400,000 mark (£418,208), while Castleriff in the Lake District and Stanton Drew in Somerset also come in above Stonehenge at £336,898 and £304,621 respectively.

The most affordable stone circle property pockets are found at the Callanish Standing Stones on the Isle of Lewis (£123,061), Beaghmore Stone Circle in County Tyrone (£158,477) and the Ring of Brodgar on the Orkney Islands (£159,274).

On the mainland, Druid’s Circle in Penmaenmawr (£171,034) and Long Meg and Her Daughters in Cumbria (£265,679) also provide more affordable options to Stonehenge.
