Things to see & do in Glastonbury
Glastonbury is a small town in Somerset, England.
Many wrongly assume that this pretty town, seven miles from the Glastonbury Festival site, will be overrun with Festival-goers during the days throughout the event. But it’s actually one of the best times to visit this ancient market town, with its famous Tor, beautiful Abbey and wide range of shops and cafés. But whatever time of year you’re in the area, the town is well worth a visit.
Glastonbury Tor Known as The ‘Isle of Avalon’, Glastonbury Tor is located in the heart of Celtic mythology, and positions itself naturally and exquisitely on the eastern periphery of Glastonbury town. This stands on the tor which is an impressive mark on the landscape of Somerset.
The Assembly Rooms is arguably the birthplace of the first “Glastonbury Festival”, held back in 1915. Then known as the Rural Arts Festival, The enchanting 19th Century Somerset vibes are amplified through the beamed roof and stoned walls, making it the perfect venue for the early festivities and adding character to the events that happen today.
Glastonbury Abbey, This is one of England's earliest, most important and most fascinating abbeys, providing sanctuary, tranquillity, history and heritage in one special place.
