Couldn't wait to go up to the Tor. Quite hard to park around but the earlier you come the better. We still had to walk quite a bit from our parking. The hill is quite steep but easy to climb and it is worth the views from the top. 360 all around, all the nature :) would go again and... More

It is a very steep climb up lots of steps to the top and you have to be fit! But the views from the top make it worthwhile you can see for miles!

Visited the Tor when camping nearby. Climbed the steeper northeastern path and descended the west slope into Glastonbury. The views of the surrounding countryside from the top is impressive. The legends that surround the place are worth reading before you visit. Make up your own mind about them!!

Walked up from the town itself. Took about forty minutes. Easy route up, well-marked. Passed a few heavy breathers along the way. Final walk up the Tor itself was exhilarating and well worth it. Entered the tower with a strong wind blowing which nearly prevented the reading of the plaque there! Rather unpleasant place foe Richard Whiting especially as he,... More

Everyone loves the Tor. The views are great. It takes it out of you to walk up but you feel good once you're up there! The Tor looks amazing from the ground too :) A real Glastonbury gem!

A hard climb from the Silver Street car park following the tourism signs - think we went up the steep way! Was glad to reach the top for a rest and to admire the views on a beautifully clear, sunny day and to submerge in the awesome energy of the Tor. We went back down the easier route and stopped...

A good hike up, the back way is easier than the front, great cardio vascular exercise and a stunning 360 view

We were looking forward to this walk and climb to the top and the trip would have been much better if it hadn't been for the fog.
