Relax on a day out to Glastonbury, where you will be free to explore this historic and mystical centre of legend at your own pace. Medieval Glastonbury clusters around the ruins of the Abbey which, following a disastrous fire in 1184, dates mostly from the 13th and 14th centuries.
The town’s many other historic buildings include the George & Pilgrim’s Hotel, founded in the 1300s as an Inn for pilgrims; the Tribunal, thought to have been a 15th century Merchants house and now the Glastonbury Lake Village Museum Tudor almshouses; the Abbey Barn, now the Somerset Rural Life Museum; and the 1754 Pump House, a reminder of the town’s brief career as a spa. Also of interest and steeped in legend is the Chalice Well, an ancient spring at the foot of the Tor.
