A Day Exploring Mystical Glastonbury

Glastonbury will always be famous for it’s incredible festival, known as one of the greatest events you can experience. People travel from all over the world to see some of the biggest names in music, perform on farmland in the middle of our beautiful county, Somerset.

I say, that people are missing a trick if they don’t take the time to explore the town to take in all of it’s ‘weird and wonderful’ ways. There’s also so much to learn about it’s rich and mysterious history; particularly the mysteries of King Arthur.

On this trip to Glastonbury we wandered the streets to visit the unique shops and experience local cafes complete with, of course, a local cider or two!
