Welcome to Glastonbury

Ley lines converge, white witches convene and every shop is filled with the aroma of smouldering joss sticks in good old Glastonbury, the southwest’s undisputed capital of alternative culture. Now famous for its musical mudfest of a festival, held on Michael Eavis’ farm in nearby Pilton, Glastonbury has a much more ancient past: the town’s iconic tor was an important pagan site, and is rumoured by some to be the mythical Isle of Avalon, King Arthur’s last resting place. It’s also allegedly one of the world’s great spiritual nodes, marking the meeting point of many mystical lines of power – if you feel the need to get your chakras realigned, this is definitely the place. Whatever the truth of the various legends swirling round Glastonbury, one thing’s for certain – watching the sunrise from the top of the tor is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.

Top  Glastonbury Attractions

Glastonbury is known worldwide; and its unique cultural and spiritual heritage has even attracted the attention of the EU’s Enterprise and Industry Directorate General, as they seek to develop and promote a new pan-European spiritual and cultural tourism route, a modern-day pilgrim’s way, based on the legend of the Holy Grail.At the height of the Abbey’s fame, mediaeval Glastonbury was second only to Rome. Glastonbury was actually known as “the Second Rome”; Roma Secunda. Glastonbury was recognised as a spiritual centre of worldwide importance and significance in the past. Today, Glastonbury still flourishes as a unique visitor destination.

The opening of the London Olympics in 2012 clearly demonstrated Glastonbury’s special significance as part of Britain’s National heritage and identity. The Tor is a National Icon; the Abbey a National Treasure. Myths and legends connect Glastonbury to King Arthur and Guinevere, the Lady of the Lake, Excalibur, Merlin, and even to the mystical Isle of Avalon itself – where the sleeping Arthur waits to be reawakened.
