Pocket Guide: Glastonbury Glastonbury Tor Hotels

The most famous landmark in Somerset, and indeed in the whole of the West Country, Glastonbury Tor can be seen for many miles around and occupies a unique place in the legendary life of the nation. Based at a B&B or guesthouse in Glastonbury, or in any Somerset hotel in the region, be sure to visit this famous hill and enjoy the magnificent view from its summit.

Somerset Hotels and Glastonbury Tor

Glastonbury Tor may offer remarkable views of the Somerset countryside, but it's the hill's spiritual significance that pulls in the sightseers from here and abroad. Its deep religious connections go back to early Christian and Pagan times, and there has been a settlement or building of some kind here for many centuries. Today, the hill is crowned with the ruins of a medieval church, and there is documented evidence of earlier churches there. In the 10th century the top of the Tor was flattened so that a solid stone church could be constructed, and in 1275 that same church was demolished by an earthquake. In 1323 a smaller church was constructed but this went the way of Glastonbury Abbey in about 1540, during the Dissolution. Only this tower remains after the site was plundered for centuries for stone to use in other buildings nearby.

Feel the Vibes at Glastonbury Tor from Somerset Hotels

The Tor's conical shape is purely natural, and in fact several thousand years ago it was a separate island. All around it, until modern drainage technology was introduced, the Somerset Levels would have flooded every winter and the Tor would tower over the area like a lone beacon. It has always been useful as a landmark and that property would have been particularly useful in medieval times. The terracing which you can see today when you pay the Tor a visit from your Somerset guesthouse or hotel dates to the Neolithic, at about the same time as Stonehenge was being erected. It might have formed a type of maze to guide pilgrims up the hill. Whatever its function, Glastonbury Tor radiates positive vibes in all directions to this day.
