Glastonbury Tor or Ynys Wydrin is a walkers/hikers dream, an easy 25 minute walk from where we parked to the summit. The history of the place alone is unbelievable and that's before we get into Arthur / Merlin legends. The views are superb and so...More

I was lucky to have visited on a sunny day. The climb is a bit steep for unfit people, but not unmanageable. There are steps and path most of the way to the top so almost suitable for family with buggies. Views are fantastic and...More

When visiting Glastonbury The Tor is a must see. Steady walk with a lovely view. About an hour or so in total.

We were lucky with the weather today as it was beautiful and sunny! There are a couple of ways to walk up to the Tor. The path is steeper than the steps option, but both offer a good workout! It's all worth it for those...More

A visit to Tor was testing at times and especially on a rare hot day in Glastonbury. The trip to St Michaels Church is quite a hike at times, but when you arrive at the hill top, you immerse yourself in a beautiful environment of...More

I always start at the bottom unsure of why I have decided to walk up here but as I proceed (and stop several times to catch my breath!) I remember exactly why! The 360 degree views are breathtaking and once at the top there is...More

We climbed to the summit of Glastonbury Tor and went inside At Michael's Tower. The walk up is just as good as the views from the top with lots of beautiful flowers, trees and scenery. The whole area has a mystical feel and it turns...More
