Mention the word Glastonbury and it instantly invokes thoughts of the iconic music festival that has been a mainstay of the country’s major events calendar for over 40 years. However, there’s much more to Glastonbury than just muddy fields and great music…
Old Oaks is located just 10 minutes’ drive from Glastonbury town centre – and we’d recommend all our guests spend some time here. The town itself has plenty of offer; from cafes, pubs and restaurants to its many independent shops and pretty market place area.
Glastonbury also played a key role in the country’s showcase event of the last decade – the 2012 London Olympics, highlighting its part in Britain’s national heritage and identity. Glastonbury Tor is regarded as a national icon while its Abbey is something of a national treasure. The town also has strong links to King Arthur and Guinevere, the Lady of The Lake, Excalibur and Merlin.
For these reasons, and many more besides, it’s easy to see why Glastonbury is such a draw for visitors – even those who have no interest in that rather big music festival! Take a look at just some of the many attractions and things to do here.
