Glastonbury is revered by many as a sacred place and to this day it still attracts pilgrims as it did hundreds and possibly thousands of years ago. The town is an impressive blend of Medieval, Georgian and Victorian architecture.

Explore the town’s historic buildings, the museum and we are just 10 minutes walking distance to all the famous sites including the Tor, the Abbey and Chalice Well.

The signs of Glastonbury’s mythical and legendary significance are everywhere, in its shops selling crystals and books on the Arthurian legends and the Holy Grail, in the Glastonbury Thorn that is said to have grown from the staff of Joseph of Arimathea, or in the legend of the fairies who lived on Glastonbury Tor.

You might say that, in Glastonbury, anything goes. But as well as being enshrouded in myth and legend, Glastonbury is also a place of more solid history that grew up around the Abbey, one of the greatest Christian strongholds in Britain before the Reformation.

Between two hills, the Tor and Chalice Hill, in Glastonbury, Somerset, there is an ancient Spring that flows from the ground in the valley. This is the Chalice Well. The Well today is surrounded by beautiful gardens in the Summerlands, where Tennyson wrote, ‘The island valley of Avalon, where falls not hail, or rain, or any snow.’ Water diviners and specialists have reported that the Spring has a ‘primary’ origin coming from deep within the earth.
