About the area
Glastonbury has been a religious centre throughout history and back into the times of legends. The Celtic monastery evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys and the town grew up alongside it. Today it’s a small but thriving town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey.
Just 5 miles from Glastonbury is Wells which is the smallest city in England (population 10,000). Its centre is the market place (local markets twice a week) surrounded by many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace.
Immediately to the south (2 miles) of Glastonbury is the more recent town of Street and these centres provide a huge range of facilities and amenities. There are excellent local schools and the private sector includes Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, All Hallows and the Bruton schools. About 12 miles south east is Castle Cary station with a main rail line to London.
