Now we know that a lot of people know Glastonbury for the music festival, but what else can be done whist down at Glastonbury? With lots of other people visiting for other reasons, we check them out here on today’s blog.
The Glastonbury Tor is a hill with St Michael’s Tower at the top, and a building that is managed by the National Trust. First recorded in the 7th and 8th century under the name of Glestingaburg, it has since been changed to Glastonbury, and the word Tor descending from the word in Old English for hill or high rock. With it being an elevated location from the town of Glastonbury, you get the view of the whole city.
Glastonbury has its own Abbey, which is currently in ruins since being built in the 7th century, and being involved in a large fire which destroyed most of the Abbey. Thought to be used for religious use in Celtic times, it has seen many ages pass over it, such as being used by monks and as a grave site for King Arthur. Being visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year, it just shows the significance of the site.
