It is one of the stunning sights that people can enjoy anywhere in the United Kingdom.
And now a cinematographer has captured the captivating moment that the sun sets into the horizon from Castle Hill.
The incredible timelapse footage shows clouds moving across the skyline as the light slowly grows dimmer.
As the recording continues the light blue of afternoon transforms into a lazy orange dusk.
People are captured moving across the shot as the light fades, and the sun grows gradually smaller as each second passes.
And then, as the film draws to its conclusion, darkness envelops the scene as the sun completely disappears behind the distant hills.
The amazing sunset scene – taken with one of the ancient monument's beacons in the foreground – was filmed by twitter user James Macdonald.
James, a part-time MBA student and project manager from Huddersfield, tweeted it to the Examiner after taking the footage on Monday, May 9.
The 42-year-old said: "It was a warm evening and I actually went up there to use a kite camera that I have. But while I was getting that set up I saw that the sunset was particularly nice, so I got my camera up and recorded it.
"There were lots of people out enjoying the views and I think the timelapse worked really well. At the moment I am studying so don't get too much time to film but I am planning on doing more when I finish my MBA."
