Glastonbury, Somerset

Glastonbury is a town like no other, with its colourful streets and eclectic range of mostly new-age shops. As you stroll through the town you’ll notice some lovely old buildings – tiny cottages, and the George & Pilgrim Inn, dating back to the 1400’s. You can walk from the town to the Tor and when you reach the top, you’ll be more than impressed with the panoramic view across the landscape. Visit the Abbey and its 37 acres of peaceful parkland whilst you’re here; believed to be the first Christian sanctuary in Britain, and according to legend, the burial site of King Arthur and his wife Guinivere. Equally tranquil is the ancient Chalice Well, set in calm and beautiful gardens. Vegetarians will find lots of delicious fare on offer in this town, though there's plenty for all tastes; Hundred Monkeys cafe bar and restaurant is very good, and there's a friendly welcome at The Who’d a Thought It Inn and Bocabar on the outskirts of town.
