History, Myths and Legends. Adventure out of London into Somerset to areas full of history, legend & beautiful landscapes
Glastonbury is most well-known for its annual music festival, but is also described by some as the 'quirkiest town in England' and attracts a lot of attention for its religious, pagan & mythical significance.
We will visit the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey that was one of the many architectural victims to Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries in the 1500s, where the Holy Thorn that is said to have descended from the staff of Joseph of Arimathea flowers twice a year - at Easter & Christmas. Glastonbury Abbey also claims to be the burial place of the legendary King Arthur & Queen Guinevere.
You will also get the chance to climb up Glastonbury Tor to St Michael's Tower, another site steeped in mystery that is associated with King Arthur, Celtic mythology & is even thought by some to be where the Holy Grail is buried, to see spectacular views across the Somerset plains.
We also visit Cheddar, home of the Cheddar cheese & Cheddar Man - the oldest complete human skeleton found in Britain estimated at 9000yrs of age. You will get a chance to explore the town with its cheese shops & cafes, enter the underground caves where prehistoric man resided, and walk across the cliff edge overlooking the gorge.Entrance to Glastonbury Abbey is included. The entrance to Cheddar Caves is not included, but you are able to purchase entrance on the day if you would like to, subject to availability & opening times.
