The ancient town of Glastonbury is shrouded in legend and myth. It reputedly hosts the first Christian Church, founded by Joseph of Arimathea, who is said to have buried the Holy Grail at the foot of Glastonbury Tor (a 526ft-high hill which still dominates the landscape today). According to Arthurian legend, Glastonbury, or the Isle of Avalon as it was formerly known, is the burial place of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere.
More recently, the town has become famous for its religious and cultural festivals and the music events, most notably held at Glastonbury Abbey and, of course, the world-famous Glastonbury Music Festival held just outside the town.
The town center itself boasts many shops and restaurants - all with the unique style and atmosphere that is Glastonbury.
