Discover Glastonbury, guided by the trees. We'll take a meandering walk around Glastonbury's beautiful countryside, taking in some spectacular views and enjoying some places of outstanding natural beauty. <br><br>Your tree guide, Matt, has a keen knowledge of the local trees, he has walked around this area for over 7 years and can provide some personal insights into the landscape, tourist sights, activities, idyllic spots and he'll take you to meet some of the oldest and largest trees in the area. <br><br>We also spend time sitting in quiet spots with wonderful views, to rest, listen to the sounds of nature, and enjoy a private acoustic performance of gentle folk music by Matt.<br><br>This is an exciting opportunity to discover Avalon guided by a local musician. Matt has a range of interests and is keen to make conversation on topics such as nature, creative inspiration, spirituality, mythology, bardic tradition and the magic of Avalon. <br><br>Let's walk to the trees.

Visiting St Margaret's Chapel was on our adgenda for our meditation retreat. We enjoyed lighting a candle for our loved ones and sitting in prayer in the intimate chapel. We were amazed at the beautifully kept garden and enjoyed peeking into the small houses that once were all those years ago

We searched for a while to find the chapel and almshouses, it is quite tucked away. It was worth the search! The almshouses were really interesting. The garden was beautiful and peaceful, as was the chapel. A hidden gem in the town centre

This tiny little church is tucked away and yet it is so welcoming. Beautiful gardens and the ambience of the place is so calm and peaceful. The little cottages were interesting to see to. A beautiful sanctuary well worth a visit.

This is THE island of peace, I love sitting in this tiny garden, which is perfect: the plants, the atmosphere, everything. At the entrance there's a finger labyrinth which helps focusing on a question. The chapel inside is quite simple. Unfortunately, the opening now is not really tourist friendly, it's open 11am-3pm on Friday, Sat and Sunday.
