Owner description: A hidden jewel in the heart of Somerset, Glastonbury Abbey is traditionally associated with the earliest days of Christianity in Britain and figures such as Joseph of Arimathea, St Patrick and St David. It is also the resting place for three Saxon kings and the legendary King Arthur. Set in 36 acres of parkland in the middle of the town, the histories, mysteries and myths of Glastonbury Abbey define it as a place of extraordinary spiritual significance. Open 364 days a year, welcoming dogs on short leads, with summer cafe, costumed guides, accredited museum and gift shop.

Worth a look around if in Glastonbury interesting facts available about the Abbey. Guided tours available that are knowledge about the Abbey and grounds. Thought it a little expensive to visit however.

Welcoming staff and well kept gardens. Be sure to get the free themed tour. A great deal of historical knowledge which unfolds in layers as you ask questions

Very informative display of history of Abbey with artefacts and explanations. Lots of explanatory signs on the rings and park like grounds. Free guided tours.

It's certainly a place full of history but there is actually not a great deal left of the building considering what an enormous abbey it was originally, so you will need to use a bit of imagination. Take the map for sure, and a tour guide if you can, and it will help a lot!
