Glastonbury Abbey

There are many legends surrounding the once greatest and richest abbey in England. It is said King Arthur and Guinevere were buried at the site, and that Joseph of Arimathea planted the holy thorn nearby.

Don’t Miss!

See the 500-year-old rare ecclesiastical robe found under a medieval pulpit in Othery. It would have been worn by a priest during ceremonies.
