Here's the info from EH for the Winter Solstice 2010 managed open access.

"2010 Winter Solstice

The celebration of the Winter Solstice at Stonehenge will take place at sunrise on Wednesday 22nd December 2010 (approximately 08:09 hrs)

English Heritage is pleased to be offering 'Managed Open Access' for those who wish to celebrate the Winter Solstice peacefully.

Visitors will be allowed into the Monument when it is considered sufficiently light to ensure safe access. Entry will be available from approximately 07:30 hrs until 09:00 hrs when visitors will be asked to vacate the site.

Access might not be possible if the ground conditions are poor or if it is felt that access might result in severe damage to the Monument.

Limited facilities are available at Stonehenge for the duration of the access although these facilities will not be available prior to access commencing (this includes the toilets). The cafe at Stonehenge will be open from 08:00 hrs"
