Glastonbury, Somerset

You could wander the breadth and length of the UK and you'd be very hard pushed to find another town quite like Glastonbury, such is its uniqueness. The town is a major attraction in this part of the West Country, mainly due to its significance as a centre of spirituality and to its famous associations with the legends of King Arthur and the Isle of Avalon. People come to stroll around the colourful streets and browse the eclectic range of shops selling all things new age, pagan and witchy. They come to visit the glorious abbey ruins linked with Joseph of Arimathea, and where King Arthur and his Queen, Guinivere are said to be buried; then there's The Chalice Well set in tranquil gardens at the foot of the famous Tor, Somerset Rural Life Museum, and up behind the town, the Tor itself, with the 15th century tower of St Michael's church and staggeringly beautiful views across the Somerset Levels and into Dorset, Wiltshire and Wales. 

Glastonbury is a fascinating place, definitely one for the curious and for anyone wanting a pack of Angel Cards, a broomstick, a crystal charging bar or a tie-dye T-shirt. Have a stroll around and you’ll notice some lovely old buildings – tiny cottages, the medieval Glastonbury Tribunal and the George & Pilgrim Inn. Oh, that's another thing, there's plenty of choice if you fancy stopping for a bite to eat, especially if you're vegan or vegetarian. The Who’d a Thought It Inn is a friendly place and we've heard that Hundred Monkeys cafe bar and restaurant is very good, but if you like fish and chips you should go to Knights Fish Restaurant - they've been going since 1909 and have a brilliant reputation for serving good, honest F&C.
