Glastonbury is a place like no other. Awash in the myth and legend of King Arthur, Guinevere, Excalibur, Merlin, and the Isle of Avalon, Glastonbury is an ideal holiday destination, cut out of the pages of your favorite childhood book. Located in southwest England in the lovely Somerset countryside, Glastonbury is formed by four sacred hills: Chalice Hill, Wearyall Hill, Windmill Hill and the Glastonbury Tor.
Nestled between the Glastonbury Tor and Chalice Hill is the Chalice Well Gardens. One of Britain’s most ancient wells, the water is reddish in color, tastes of iron, and is said to have magical properties. Less than 100 meters (328 feet) from the Chalice Well is the White Spring. At the foot of Glastonbury Tor, White Spring offers water rich in calcium, sweet tasting, and is also believed to possess healing abilities.
Other treasures include the Glastonbury Abbey, a ruined 7th-century monastery believed to be the burial place of King Arthur. The Glastonbury Festival is another attraction, this five-day, world-renowned event is held every summer and showcases the best in music, arts, and culture from around the world. Let Glastonbury transport you to a land filled with magical and mystical appeal and allow the friendly locals to show off their town and the best places to stay with these excellent Airbnb vacation rentals:
