Twenty things to do without a car in and around Glastonbury

Have you ever thought about visiting Glastonbury and leaving your car at home or arriving by car and leaving it in our car park whilst you are with us.

There is an excellent bus service from Bristol Temple Meads and a reasonable service from Taunton and Yeovil - we have current bus timetables for your use. We are not situated on the bus route so you could get off at the top of the High Street, which would shorten the walk, although if you do have a suitcase we would recommend a taxi from Glastonbury town Hall bus stop.
