"Glastonbury" Top 5 Page for this destination Glastonbury by Krumlovgirl

Glastonbury Travel Guide: 138 reviews and 437 photos

Glastonbury is a wonderful town, full of magic. A place of pilgrimage for the Christians and non-Christians alike, it is a town full of mystery and great energy. The Glastonbury Tor is reputed to be the location of the mystical Isle of Avalon, as well as home to fairyland. The chalice garden is supposedly where the Holy Grail is burried. And then you have the Glastonbury Abbey, where Joseph of Ariimathea set down his staff and spurned the Holy Thorn tree, as well as being the supposed gravesite of King Arthur. It's also a wonderful place to people-watch. Lots of New-Age shops and unique gifts.

    A lovely place. I visited it ages ago and can't remember seeing the Chalice Gardens. The Goddess Temple? It may not have been there at the time. Never mind, I wouldn't make a good priestess of Avalon anyway. Very nice page with lovely pictures.

    One of my favourite places too (I am stalking JohntheFinn again). I keep getting invites to a Goddess Conference as result of visiting the temple!

    That cream tea has given me an idea about doing some baking this weekend! You know more about the place than I do - and I come from Taunton! Mike
