The Glastonbury Way is a collaboration between Glaston Centre, Glastonbury Conservation Society, Glastonbury Town Council, Mendip District Council and funded by The Glastonbury Town Fund.
This 7.5-mile circular route around the town offers opportunities for people of all walks of life to immerse in pilgrim practices or simply enjoy an interesting walk around the Glastonbury landscape.
Glimpses into the history, myth and legend of our historical and sacred sites are included on interpretation boards along the Way. Benches offer places to rest, breathe, and enjoy the living landscape.
