To the south, Glastonbury Tor stands proud on the horizon, while in between, the town offers a truly original mix of independent shops, a choice of good rated local schools and a thriving community that you’ll feel proud to be a part of.
Glastonbury may be an island of rural tranquillity surrounded by Somerset countryside, but it remains within easy reach of Bristol, Bath and Taunton, each around 25 miles drive. If you are heading further afield, the M5 is just 15 miles away to the west and the rail connections of Castle Cary Station is a similar distance.
You’re just as close to some breathtaking Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty too, with the Mendip Hills, Cranborne Chase, the Quantock Hills and the Cotswolds all near enough for a family day out exploring some of England’s most stunning scenery, charming towns and villages. Alternatively, there’s a choice of classic coastal towns, such as Weston-Super-Mare, just 22 miles away.
People travel from all over the country to visit Glastonbury for the culture, history and mystery. You can visit the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey or climb the legendary Glastonbury Tor with its far-reaching views and epic past of myths and legends. Within the town, there is a large number of high-quality restaurants and friendly gastro pubs, along with a number of other fascinating attractions.
Shopping in and around Glastonbury High Street is a unique experience, with a host of curious craft shops and alternative stores set amongst the more familiar national names. Glastonbury Market is held every Tuesday, with a farmers’ market every 4th Saturday of the month.
Naturally, the name Glastonbury is synonymous with the huge music festival that is held nearly every summer at Worthy Farm. Fortunately, while this is close enough for Avalon residents to enjoy without huge travel or accommodation costs, it is also distant enough, at Pilton around six miles away, to be completely ignored if you choose to do so.
