About the area
Glastonbury's past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. A religious centre throughout history and back into the times of legends. There was a Celtic monastery here by 500 AD which, in the next 1000 years evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and by the 18th century had become a manufacturing and trading centre. Today it’s a small but thriving town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year.
Just 5 miles from Glastonbury is Wells which is the smallest city in England (population 10,000). Its centre is the marketplace (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, known to many for Clarks retail village and Millfield School.
There are excellent state and independent schools in the area and about 15 miles southeast is Castle Cary station with a main rail line to London.
