Glastonbury Abbey is connected with legend to a degree that is unparalleled by any other abbey in England. Since Medieval times it has held legendary status as the earliest Christian foundation in Britain linked to Joseph of Arimathea and the burial place of King Arthur.

The internationally renowned site attracts visitors from around the world and there has been a church on the site for at least 1500 years with evidence of even earlier occupation.

There's a packed events calendar, an accredited museum and 36 acres of parkland to explore.

Refreshments/Cafe/Tearoom. Suitability for Dogs: On leads.
