Situated on the Somerset Levels, Glastonbury is a town shrouded in history, myth, and legend. The town itself is quaint and picturesque, with many listed buildings, such as the Pilgrim’s Inn built in the 15th century. Glastonbury has unique spiritual ties, with many New Age travellers making a pilgrimage to this mystical site. Visit in the summer or winter solstice for a truly magical experience.
The Tor, just outside the town itself, offers incredible views of the surrounding area. Rising some 500ft above the Somerset Levels, the hill is topped by a tower of a ruined 15th-century church. From the summit you can see north to Wells, the Mendips, and the Bristol Channel; east to Shepton Mallet and Wiltshire; south to the Polden Hills, west to the Quantocks and Exmoor.
Also home to the summer’s most famous music festival…
