Medieval Glastonbury is a thriving market town at the heart of the county of Somerset. It is one of the best known places in England for its historical and archaeological importance. The town grew up alongside the Abbey that evolved into one of the most wealthy and influential abbeys in England. Its fame rests chiefly upon myths generated ages ago, which link the town to Joseph of Arimathea and King Arthur. But it is also celebrated for the ruins of its ancient abbey church, the Iron Age lake villages of Glastonbury and Mere and the Glastonbury festival.
The towns many other historic buildings include the George and Pilgrims hotel, founded as an inn for pilgrims; the Tribunal, a 15th century merchant’s house, now the Glastonbury Lake Village museum and Tourist Information Centre; the Abbey barn now the Somerset Rural Life Museum; and the legendary Chalice Well an ancient spring at the foot of the Tor.
