Glastonbury Abbey

Glastonbury Abbey was once the greatest and richest Abbey in the country and  is the legendary burial place of King Arthur. From March to October you can take a tour with a Costumed Guide, who will bring history to life with tales of monks, kitchen maids, pilgrims and even King Arthur’s court! There’s an outdoor summer cafe, a gift shop and a visitor centre and small museum.
The relative seclusion of the 36 acre site of Glastonbury Abbey provides the perfect atmosphere for people who want to forget their hectic daily lives, and take it easy, and is also great for picnics! Children can feed the ducks or run around in the lush expanse of open parkland whilst their parents take a well-earned nap under a suitable tree.
