Camping in Glastonbury

Sitting at the heart of the West Country, there’s much more to this town than the 5-day summer festival which has brought it international fame. Glastonbury is surrounded by fascinating historical sites, seeped in legend and myth and makes for a great holiday destination all year round.

Overlooking the town is the striking Glastonbury Tor with its iconic tower sitting at the very top. No visit to Glastonbury would be complete without a short walk up to the summit for spectacular views across the Somerset levels, Wiltshire and Dorset. The history of the Tor is long, varied and at times gruesome yet it is widely recognised as being one of the most spiritual sites in the UK.

Lying in the centre of town are the stunning remains of Glastonbury Abbey, one of England’s earliest Christian sites. The site includes a museum for visitors to discover more about the Abbey’s historical significance and perhaps most notably the final resting place of King Arthur. Visitors can also enjoy picnic areas, a gift shop, cider orchard and wildlife area.

A stroll around the shops in Glastonbury will offer a unique experience unlike most typical rural high streets. The town boasts a rather eclectic assortment of independent retailers selling all manner of things including healing crystals, jewellery, local art and organic beauty products. For a true West Country experience, you’ll also need to sample some local cider. There are a number of cider shops in the town or you can go straight to source and visit one of the cider makers nearby.

Once you’ve explored Glastonbury itself, set your sights further afield to some of the other gems that Somerset has to offer. Wells boasts a glorious cathedral which is more than deserving of a visit; its only a short drive up to Cheddar where you can explore the world famous gorge; or you can pop along the designer outlet village in Street for a spot of retail therapy.
