Great walk

This was my first walk since an accident I had breaking my legs & I really enjoyed it. Plenty of steps like physio !! It's a good challenge & proud I made it too the top.

I visited the Tor on numerous occasions. Its a very easy climb and makes it all worth while when you get to the top. I love this place and I can feel the energy coming from it as travel into the town of Glastonbury. Its a very magical and mystical place and dear to my heart. As you climb up... More

There are two ways to walk up to the Tor. On is more direct, but steep, and goes straight up the front (side closest to two). The other winds around behind the hill. I recommend going up the second way, and coming down the front. You'll see a number of great views; take your time and enjoy them. You can... More

If you like to meditate, this is a great spot. I have been up there more times than I can remember now. However, this trip in Oct 2016, I made the decision to pay it a visit at night during the full moon. Had an amazing experience, shot good photos on a tripod, and saw a totally different scene as...

You cannot miss climbing the Tor...or at least a part of it...spectacular 360 degree view of Somerset...can be a great experience on many different levels as you gaze across the Somerset levels! Approach with an open mind and an open heart!

Very nice place for photo oops. Be prepared for a climb. A long climb lots of steps! Historic a must see. Avoid it if you have problems walking as it will take a lot of activity and effort.

The installation of steps have made this a much easier climb than it used to be but allow extra time if you get short of breath. It would be a mistake imo to attempt this if you cannot walk unaided. Views spectacular and read the information provided to get the sense of history. This, st Stephens tower, was the entrance... More

The walk from Glastonbury itself is very pleasant and though the path is well marked and maintained, it could be quite challenging ffor some people. The Tor gives you a very nice view of the surrounding Somerset area but go on a day with good weather otherwise you won't be able to see much.
