Activities/Attractions: Glastonbury is three hours from London and Birmingham, two from Cardiff and one hour from Bristol and Exeter. It's a funny mixture of a small country town and a world-renowned pilgrimage place with a 21st Century twist to it. Glastonbury is also a special market town.

With through traffic now by-passing the town centre, and with more than adequate 'central parking', shopping in Glastonbury is a pleasurable experience. The town boasts many different and interesting shops. Many are independent specialists in their field, offering good old-fashioned service.

  • Glastonbury is thought to have been a site for pre-Christian worship, perhaps because of its location by the Tor, the highest of the hills surrounding Glastonbury and a superb natural viewpoint
  • There is a ruined medieval church at the top of the Tor, the tower of which remains
  • Dominating the skyline in this part of the beautiful county of Somerset you will find dramatic Glastonbury Tor
  • In Glastonbury, history, myth and legend combine in such a way that most visitors cannot fail to feel the "vibes" and powerful atmosphere of the town
  • For not only is Glastonbury the cradle of Christianity in England but is also reputed to be the burial place of King Arthur

The legend of the Holy Grail brings together the myths and legends of King Arthur and the story of Joseph of Arimathea building the first church at Glastonbury. The Glastonbury legend has the boy Jesus and his uncle Joseph of Arimathea building the first wattle and daub church on the site of Glastonbury Cathedral. Joseph is said to have buried the Holy Grail just below the Tor, where a spring, now known as Chalice Well, began to flow and the water was supposed to bring eternal youth to whoever would drink it. It is said that many years later, one of the quests of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table was the search for the Holy Grail.
