We popped up the Tor on a return trip from camping in Somerset. Having never been before, we easily found a round trip up the back of the hill and then down the front. The climb is not insignificant, and it took us about an...More

Good climb up with a bench at the halfway point. Spend sometime taking in the breathtaking 360 view.

If you don't climb you won't see the views, and they are awesome! The hills of Exmoor to the South and Wales to the NW. The Somerset levels laid out before you. Stunning

Go the easy way or the steep way, or chop it down with the edge of your hand. Great reward at the top.

Be ready or a good climb. But the view at the top is worth the effort, there is a local bus service from the town centre to the venue.

I had read that it was easier to climb the steps from the opposite side of the village, and how glad I had seen that, because that was much easier on the climb, if you follow the blue walking signs from the High St, then...More

If you get the chance to climb Glastonbury Tor then do it! It's quite deceiving and doesn't take as long as you'd think. There are decent steps cut into the hill which makes it easier, although the path is quite narrow. I walked up from...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

It is totally about the weather and coming down solid walking boot soles would definitely help. Not somewhere to be caught out in flip flops!
