It is a nice walk (steep in places for old people or those with bad knees like me) to the top of the Tor. I can imagine a lovely view from the top but we did our walk in the fog which obscured the view. Still we enjoyed the walk and the feel of the open fields and such. I... More

It's a hill with a church tower on top... It is so much more than that and has an inexplicable atmosphere and relaxed atmosphere. I don't intend to go into why people say it is special as the internet covers this adequately. There is a great view across the levels, over to Wells and across to Weston. The walk up... More

If you're unfit, the hike to the top is traumatising but for the views over Somerset and the stunning building at the top it's totally worth it. Truly an icon and well worth a visit.

Tor is Hill - and just by Glastonbury this is a steep hill just outside the town with a tower on the summit. It makes a lovely walk in most weathers though it can get crowded. Popular with dog walkers; photographers; walkers; anyone wanting to see the expansive views; people exercising Children etc. etc... Its a hill on a flat(ish)... More

Magical!! Make sure you drink the healing waters of the White Spring, a very sacred place where locals collect their water, play music, pray.

Quite a steep walk up uneven steps but the view at the top is worth it. It is not a particularly long walk probably 15-30 mins depending on your fitness. Dogs are welcome on a lead (sheep grazing). Quite difficult to find a nearby place to park as there is no official car park. In summer there is a park... More

This was my first walk since an accident I had breaking my legs & I really enjoyed it. Plenty of steps like physio !! It's a good challenge & proud I made it too the top.
