Glastonbury Festival 2014

Glastonbury town

This area of the website has been created to highlight the colourful offerings of the town of Glastonbury itself. Many wrongly assume that this pretty town, seven miles from the Festival site, will be overrun with Festival-goers during the days throughout the event. But it's actually one of the best times to visit this ancient market town, with its famous Tor, beautiful Abbey and wide range of shops and cafés. But whatever time of year you're in the area, the town is well worth a visit.
