“Place to go if you are ever lost in Glastonbury!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

This place is a real gem, it is run predominantly by volunteers and can tell you everything you need to know about Glastonbury and the surrounding area: where to go, everything about the spiritual history of the town and what's going on. Maps, guides and also a gift shop. It is tucked away through the arch heading down to the Assembly Rooms so it is not easy to see from the High Street. Ask in any of the shops, though, they can point you in the right direction.

Thank you very much indeed for your review Mara. I think a good guideline to find us is to locate the Tourist Information Centre on the High Street - we are in the archway directly opposite and over the road.

“Small, but very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

This place is small, but contains interesting maps, walks and histories of interesting facts about Glastonbury.
Most things you need to pay for, but great to find them in this friendly and helpful setting.
Check times though, as it is not always open.

We are delighted to receive your review - thank you very much indeed. Yes, we are small (diamonds are not as big as rocks eh? ;) and would love a bigger location so that we could provide larger displays and exhibitions - that is our aim for the future :)
All verbal information and support is offered by the volunteers 'for the love of it'. Donations are always welcome though! We are a not for profit organisation and naturally need funds to cover running expenses. The maps and pamphlets that we sell all directly support the centre so we can continue offering a warm and supportive welcome to all visitors exploring Glastonbury.

Warm blessings to you and all the very best for 2014 and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Hi Pete!
Thank you for your review. I particularly liked your reference to the interesting characters. I think that's one of the great things about the PRC, the volunteers all come from differing walks of life and differing perspectives and every visit can be different to the last one!
