Glastonbury Abbey image

Hidden away in the centre of this ancient market Town are the awe-inspiring ruins, of what was the largest and richest Abbey in England; set amongst 36 acres of beautiful Somerset parkland and ponds. In the Spring see thousands of snowdrops and crocus, followed later by daffodils, bluebells and then masses of Wildflowers and native grasses; and in Autumn colour on our hundreds of trees.

From March to October meet a character - maybe a monk, a kitchen maid, Henry VIII’s Commissioner or one of King Arthurs Knights , who will regale you with the history and legends of this once great Abbey – the largest and wealthiest in Britain.

From 1st May until 30th September let our outdoor summer cafe refresh you. There is lots to see and do here. Don’t forget to visit t www.glastonburyabbey.com - for the events that take place here throughout the year ! [- VisitSomerset]
