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
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.

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
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

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!
