Last weekend, I had a training course in Street located in Somerset as I have been selected to work at Glastonbury Festival this year! Very exciting!
As Street and Glastonbury are only 8 minutes apart, I had to make a detour for a quick wonder, and when I say quick wonder.. I walked through the town for an hour with my phone on 12%, not exactly the adventure I wanted – but I will definitely be returning soon!
Within my hour in Glastonbury, even though it was a quiet Sunday as the shops were closed, I still saw 4 fortune tellers, a man dressed as a pirate and 2 women dressed as fairies… along with more crystal and enlightenment shops than grocery shops!
Even though I didn’t explore the that far, throughout the high street there is beautiful architecture, mainly blended in to the more recent surroundings.
The above picture is the Glastonbury Tribunal is late 15th-century stone town house, which now is home to a Tourist Information Centre and the Glastonbury Lake Village Museum.
The Church of St John the Baptist, Glastonbury, as pictured below was completed in the 15th century as stands proud in the middle of the town.
I am planning to revisit Glastonbury soon to explore even more, an hour is not enough time to take it all in!
As well as the high street filled with character, many walls are covered in street art (see my post ‘Glastonbury – Street Art #1’) the Glastonbury Tor is known as being one of the most spiritual sites in the country and offers incredible views at the top and Glastonbury Abbey was destroyed by a major fire in 1184 but the remains are now a must-see when visiting.
Have you visited Glastonbury before?
