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 reviews
Great views from the top on a clear day. We've been several times in all weathers and it never fails to inspire us.

Have walked this Tor several times in the past, each time is different. Steep climb from the North side this time, dog helped to pull me up. Well worth the walk!
