Worth the climb to the top for the 360 views. Last time we did this was during the day in August so quite a few visitors. Best time we've visited is an early summer evening - we may have been lucky then, but was lovely...More

Definitely worth the gentle walk to the top of the Tor to watch the sun go down, it is steeped in history and folklore, A must visit for everyone.

Lovely walk up to the Tor today. We parked in the car park at Draper & Co (£2 paid via an honesty box as the shop was shut). The car park is a short walk to the start of the path up to the Tor....More

We took in the Tor as part of a longer walk across the Isle of Avalon and a mooch round the rather eclectic but amazing shops in Glastonbury. It’s. step climb to the top, which is now well paved and stepped. It was fresh at...More

This is a must see, but be warned, the hike up is not for the faint-of-heart or Americans used to the level of accessibility we have here. The steps are uneven, inconsistent, muddy & steep. Not an issue for us, but I throw it out...More

Glastonbury has two sides . The musical event every year. Secondly the place of pilgrimage by religious people.

The Tor is just the most magical place and although I found the climb up a little difficult I managed to climb it with Tor guiding me along. The view from the top is spectacular and Tor ( our guide) made it fun and very...More

If you’re in the Glastonbury area, a trip up to the Tor is a must. With commanding 360 degree views over the Somerset Levels, this place is well worth a visit. Bit of trek, especially considering the lack of parking but well worth the trek...More

I love walking on the Tor. Yes, it’s a hill but you can take your time going up and down, if needed. The views are amazing as is the tranquil and magical atmosphere.

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
