We walked up from the main town and up the road way to the first field. Uphill all the way. Once on the field we saw the length of the walk up to the Tor and we were a little put off but once we...More
Once you arrive at the Tor the views are unbelievable. There are two ways you can get to it. The Bulwarks Lane steps up to the Tor are the shorter way up, but the steepest. Not for the faint hearted. We walked past the White...More
We walked up the back end of the tor which was quite steep, then walked down the front path. The paths are in good order, but you do need to wear suitable footwear.
The views from the top are great, you can see for miles....More
Glastonbury tor is a favorite place. Great views and if there aren't many people it is really lovely. Worth the walk up for the view alone. Many people gather for the spirituality of the place and that can bes grating if bought spirituality isn't your...More
As idiotic hikers we climbed Glastonbury Tor on the hotest day of the year but the views where amazing. Absolutely stunning views over the Mendips to Wells and beyond. The Tor has stood the test of time and is absolutely beautiful in its simplicity. Tips:...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 or so (it ascends very gradually) and there are a couple of benches halfway up for a rest stop. (or you can simply plunk yourself down on the grass) There are no real hard drop-offs, just gentle slopes. Once you get to the top, it's quite a wide flat area, no crazy vertigo-inducing drops or anything like cliff edges etc. You can sit down on the grass if you feel like it. The view is lovely but quite gentle, not scary at all. (I must add that I refuse to go on any kind of rollercoaster ride, I am quite conservative in that way, yet I've never felt scared of the Tor.) I hope this is helpful!
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
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 time as many people do the walk in stages as there are several benches to sit on, or the grass if its dry, have a great time as I really did find it worth the effort, the views from up there are amazing!
