Nearby Attractions

For anyone who is visiting Glastonbury for the first time at the conference, we would recommend you stay in the town for at least two additional days.  Glastonbury has many great things to see and do.  For the spiritual traveller there are many sights.  Taking the Pilgrim's walk up the Tor is a must see, as well as a dip in the Pagan White Springs and a visit to the Chalice Well (Red Springs).  The Abbey is worth a visit for it's stark beauty, Abbot's kitchen, grave of King Arthur and Gueneviere and lovely gardens.   See our page
