Great views once you get to the top. Always up for a walk with Bracken the dog we did a circular route, walking up the road, then up to the Tor then coming back down the steps into the town. If you don't want to...More

I wont give you a history of the Tor, because it is extensive, but I would recommend you look into it yourself before you visit. We decide to walk the Druid trails and began with a search for Gog and Magog, the revered ancient oak...More

Make sure you are fit , it's a hard walk but the views from the top of the surrounding area are beautiful, with the men dip hills in the distance , l should imagine it's harder if raining but worth the effort

The incline to the top of the hill is steep. A little difficult if you have physical or breathing problems. The view from the top is breathtaking. We took a pastry slice with us that we bought in the local bakery in the high street,...More

A nice walk for some, a steep climb for others, on a good day it has fantastic views from the top. A facinating historical site.

Well worth the climb to the top. Beautiful views in all directions. I managed to find a peaceful corner away from the bank holiday crowds.

We climbed up the steep way, in the mist. The tower came into view almost magically as the mist thinned then thickened again! no view on this occasion as the mist was very thick. however, a marvellous mystical hike. - we took the stepped path...More

We chose the arrival of storm Brian to visit, and at the top it was exceptionally windy. But so pleased to have got to the top, stunning 360 views. Mostly steps up to the top, so maybe unaccessible for those with knee/leg issues or who...More

I have heard that Glastonbury is the heart chakra of the world, but is the Tor the pinnacle of that heart? Not sure, as there are many sacred places in Glastonbury. The whole area may be the heart chakra, but perhaps you... More

From the high street to the bottom of the hill is probably 15 to 20min depending on how briskly you walk. Up the Tor itself, I would say another 15 to 20min

About 20/25 minutes but far easier to get the Tor bus and walk back.
