Aside from its legendary (or possibly notorious!) annual music festival, Glastonbury is also famous as a sacred site of pilgrimage throughout the Middle Ages and even today, many people are drawn here by the mystical atmosphere. The most important sites in Glastonbury are the Abbey, a stunning ruin where many believe King Arthur was buried alongside Guinevere; the Tor, a tall, imposing tower set high on a hill, and the Chalice Well and Gardens, a blissfully peaceful oasis.
Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.
It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!
You can enjoy breakfast, morning coffee, lunch of afternoon tea here. With lovely views, you can often spot local wildlife whilst sitting in the pretty gardens.
