Glastonbury Tor is quite a site from any angle. As you get closer it gets better and better but you need to be fit.I nicknamed it Heart Attack hill. My heart rate went through the roof. Make use of the seats on the way up...More

Short and easy climb to give you amazing views of the Somerset Downs. You may even find a beautiful woman at the top playing a pan Drum. Works for me!!

Beautiful and mysterious place! If you want to enjoy all day outdoors would recommend to go on Glastonbury Tor. 5 and 7 years old enjoyed the day out.

I had a fantastic evening climbing up the Tor with the wind gusting and threatening while the sun was dipping into its pastel paintbox. it was an evening to be cherished. Hope your climb will be as magical.

We happened to be staying locally and hit it at the right time as the sun went down on a beautiful autumn evening. Well worth the climb up as we could see all the way to the coast- absolutely stunning!!

Blowing out of my @rse when I got to the top of Glastonbury Tor today (asthmatic with one lung doesn't help), what a view though and the town itself is a rare but nice experience of colourful hippies and paganism with a strong waft of...More

What’s not to like? Well worth a walk up. The path is decent, route dotted with sheep with the reward of beautiful views one up there. Splendid.

We took our 5 kids (age between 6 and 13) they loved climbing the mountain (as the kids called it) to get the the magical church at the top and the wonderful views! I’d definitely love to go back to this place especially at night...More

Hi Jane, I don't much like heights either, but the Tor is no problem. A five year old in flipflops can walk it. I'm 57 by the way and not that fit. There's a concrete path all the way to the top, with a step every four feet... More

Hi, It maybe advisable to wear wellies to climb the Tor due to the recent bad weather conditions, but normal flat shoes are usually ok as there is a path the entire way up to the top, but it is really steep, so take your... More
