Overview
More
A hidden jewel in the heart of Somerset, Glastonbury Abbey is traditionally associated with the earliest days of Christianity in Britain and figures such as Joseph of Arimathea, St Patrick and St David. It is also the resting place for three Saxon kings and the legendary King Arthur. Set in 36 acres of parkland in the middle of the town, the histories, mysteries and myths of Glastonbury Abbey define it as a place of extraordinary spiritual significance. Open 364 days a year, welcoming dogs on short leads, with summer cafe, costumed guides, accredited museum and gift shop.

This is a lovely peaceful place for a stroll. You get a view of the Tor. Interesting fish with long genetics in a pool. The old kitchen is a must see.

The guide was excellent, funny and made the tour fly by. She was very knowledgeable and gave loads of information but made sure people knew some info was based on stories and could not be substantiated
