Glastonbury is one of the UK’s most unique towns. Widely considered the birthplace of English hippiedom and the New Age movement, its streets are awash with incense. The town also boasts some legitimately breathtaking sites. Glastonbury Abbey was once among the country's most powerful Christian sites. Today, its ruins and grounds contain a fine museum, orchard and gardens. What’s more, the 14th-century Abbot’s Kitchen sits intact, offering a centuries-old glimpse into monastic life. Lake Village Museum adds to this cultural heritage, displaying captivating artefacts from a prehistoric bog. Be sure to explore the surrounding Somerset countryside before returning to your delightful hotel.
Glastonbury is a charming, offbeat town with Middle Age monuments and mystical New Age shops. For the best stay, dive headfirst into the town’s grand mythology.

You’ll find these highly dubious myths charmingly referenced throughout the town, in druids shops and cosy pubs. Go with it, and you’ll find Glastonbury more endearing by the second.
