It is also one of the earliest seats of Christianity and the famous Glastonbury Pilgrimages bring Christians from far afield.
Events are wide ranging and fascinating - The Goddess Conference. The Dance Festival. Glastonbury Festival. Children's World Festival. The Extravaganza Classical Music Festival, the list goes on and on
