Famously known for music festival, Glastonbury is home to much more than Michael Eavis’ Worthy Farm. Set in the gloriously green pastures of Somerset in the South West of England, this rural market town is hugely popular with those looking to enjoy a holiday in the English countryside.

Holidays in Glastonbury, Somerset Amplified to fame by its iconic musical mud-fest, Glastonbury is a place recognised across the globe. The town comes alive in June, when the festival is traditionally held, but once the festival-goers head back to the real world, Glastonbury returns to the peaceful market town it’s lesser known as. As quirky as it is beautiful, Glastonbury’s intriguing past is a bubbling melting pot overflowing with myths and legends. The tor was a prominent pagan site and rumour has it that this steep grassy knoll is the mystical Isle of Avalon, King Arthur’s final resting place. A hike to the top to watch the sunrise will be sure to lure you under Glastonbury’s irresistible spell.

Holiday Activities in Glastonbury Hidden deep within the West Country, Glastonbury is a pastoral retreat perfect for those looking to escape to the countryside. The ancient town is a wonderful base from which to discover the best of rural Somerset, offering families and couples the chance to unwind outside the comparative bustle of Bath and Bristol. Cloaked in myths and legends, don’t miss the chance to unearth the history behind Glastonbury Tor and Glastonbury Abbey with its crumbling ruins. Explore a little further afield and visit Stonehenge, one of the world’s most famous monuments, or indulge in a little retail therapy hopping between the boutiques of Glastonbury town, Street and Kilver Court close by.
