Glastonbury Tor is an iconic and evocative landmark that offers magnificant views of the Somerset Levels, Dorset, Wiltshire and on a really clear day Wales. Steeped in history and legend, excavations at the top of the Tor have revealed the plans of two superimposed churches of St Michael, of which only a 15th century tower remains. Glastonbury Tor is known as being one of the most spiritual sites in the country. Its pagan beliefs are still very much celebrated. It is a beautiful place to walk, unwind and relax.
