Create an itinerary including Glastonbury Tor
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.

  • Loved the experience of climbing to the top of this beautiful hill; a great place for contemplation. The Tor itself is small, as ruin remnants go, but achieving this challenging climb made it all...

  • Great walk which ends with very impressive views of the surrounding countryside. The tower at the top is picturesque and a wide area around provides ample room for picnicking. Yhere is a dial on top which points out areas, directions and distances to local points of interest showing a relief to help orientate you. The walk is steep and takes about 30 mins for experienced walkers from Glastonbury. The only downside is parking is limited and expensive in the town.
  • We loved walking up the Tor, stunning views all around. Worth the steep walk up, take a picnic and relax with incredible views
