Looking to unwind and relax? Glastonbury Tor is a well-loved Somerset landmark associated with myths and legends, but it is also a place where you can walk about and take in the spectacular scenery. Perfect for the whole family, children can run about and have fun at the foot of the field and even come face to face with some amazing wildlife. At 158 metres it rises high above the Avalon Marshes and can be seen from across the county and beyond. On its summit stands St Michael’s tower, which adds further to the dramatic effect of the Tor at sunrise, sunset and on misty mornings.

Where can I find Glastonbury Tor?

Glastonbury Tor is just to the East of the town of Glastonbury. A 10-minute walk from the High Street and Abbey (well signposted) will take you past Chalice Well to the foot of the Tor.

Learn all about Glastonbury Tor’s grisly past and the myths that lie here. Abbot Richard Whiting was executed here in 1549 on the orders of Thomas Cromwell, the first Earl of Essex and now Glastonbury Tor is known as being one of the most spiritual sites in the country. Its pagan beliefs are still very much celebrated.
