Glastonbury Tor

This place is free to view. A footpath leads to the top of the hill, but be prepared for a fairly steep climb. Once at the top there is usually always some form of a brisk breeze any time of the year. The top commands excellent views which can obviously best be appreciated on a clear day. Thousands of people per year walk to the top of the Tor, many mysteriously drawn to do so, probably as the symbol of the Tor and the hill on which it stands has come to embody for many the mystical/religious/spiritual/historical qualities that Glastonbury offers to all its visitors.

The word 'tor' means a hill or rocky peak particularly associated with Devon & Cornwall (UK), and is also believed to be based on the Gaelic word 'tor' meaning bulging hill.
