Big bang for your buck

Fab 360 views. Accessible by steps from town end but no convenient parking - you may need to park in town and walk.

We were lucky and climbed up to the Tor on a mild and sunny day. The panoramic views over Glastonbury are wonderful at the top, but I think the thing that sets the Tor apart is the friendly energy and unique vibe that seems to persist whenever we have visited in the past. There has always been a real mix... More

Climbing to the Tor is now a bit of a family tradition when in the area and my ever growing family have a acceded the Tor to have, what can only be described as a full 'wind facelift' at the summit! Great for kite flying I assume although conversation is tricky - bit like chatting into a jet engine.

Lovely place ! Bit of a pull up but worth it when you get to the top ! Especially if you catch it on a nice day. An interesting history to read up on and compulsory if you visit Glastonbury :)

You can stop at the Springs first and then take the easy route through the pathed field. Lots of friendly folk enjoying a breezy stroll to this interesting monument. The views are lovely.

The Glastonbury Tor seems to be one of those compulsory places when visiting the area. It is on top of the highest hill in the vicinity and commands an imposing view over the landscape, a mish-mash of farms and small villages, apart from the town of Glastonbury. Be prepared for it may be quite windy or chilly up there!

If you like a little bit of history mixed with art, freedom, love, and good old fashioned fresh air, visit Glastonbury Tor. The views are the best in somerset, you can see for miles and miles out across the beautiful fields and hills. The place is steeped in history, it may just look like a tiny ruin on top of... More

I decided to make the walk to the top on a dark,cold misty December evening. It was certainly worth the walk (not too hard). It is certainly very peaceful up there with splendid views of nearby town. If you are in Glasto, its a must!!

The most magical experience, beautiful location and legendary Avalon island, this high hill was before surrounded by waters of the winter flooded plains.

The climb up is certainly worth the lovely views at the top of the Tor. It's a bit windy up the top so wrap up warm. Steep steps with no hand rail.
