Glastonbury Tor, Glastonbury

4.8
#1 of 69 in Parks in Somerset
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
Glastonbury Tor stands as one of the UK's most spiritually and historically significant landmarks. Artifacts on this prominent hill date back to the Iron Age and Roman era, and the site makes appearances in Celtic mythology. Today the remains of a large 15th-century church tower help give the Tor its commanding presence over Glastonbury, while seven symmetrical and unexplained terraces lend it a sense of mystery. Head to the top of the hill for expansive views of the surrounding countryside, and enjoy a picnic when you return to the bottom. Follow the concrete path for a less steep route to the top that also helps prevent walker-induced erosion. Glastonbury Tor is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Glastonbury Edition.

  • A perfect walk for those who want to see a spectacular view over the hills not to mention the peace and calmness to sit and relax and take it all in.  more »
  • Beautiful oversight of the region. Fantastic sky views and historical relevance. Pretty easy hike up a well maintained trail.  more »
  • Quite a steep climb, and was very, very windy, so just make sure you hold on to your hat all the way up. But when you reach the top wow what a view – simply breathtaking.  more »
