Free Glastonbury

The Top Free Things To Do In and Around Glastonbury, Somerset, UK

One of the things I really appreciate about Glastonbury Town is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy yourself here, it’s perfectly possible to enjoy a cheap day out. There is often a free event going on in the High Street and many of the best experiences can be enjoyed on a budget. There’s plenty to do and see on the outskirts too, especially if you are up for a walk or a cycle.

This post, which includes a map and walking / cycle route that takes in many of the best free places to visit on the Somerset Levels close to Glastonbury, now forms part of the Glastonbury Town Visitor’s Guide. The Guide covers everything you might need to know to make the most of your visit to Glastonbury and is available to members of We Are Normal For Glastonbury.

To continue reading this post and get access to the Visitor’s Guide, discounts from Glastonbury businesses, exclusive writing about the town and a member’s blog and forum please click here. Membership is only £20 per year and supports me to continue publishing Normal For Glastonbury on WordPress, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. Click the link below to learn more.

  1. The levels have their own glorious magic, for sure, but if you get a yen for a proper wood on a hill whilst in the area then do check out Combe Wood, taking the Butleigh Road to the south of Glastonbury or approaching it via Street; it’s remarkably close. At one end sits the old Hood Monument, offering a stunning perspective on the Tor, and towards the other end the trees roll on until suddenly they open out and you’re looking down on Hobbiton and the Shire (and I do mean Tolkien’s version rather than Peter Jackson’s Teletubbieland! ) Compton Dundon nestles delightfully below and Somerset rolls away into the blue distance, offering a completely different landscape to the marshlands. Footpaths through the wood are generally easy and there’s also a free car park, and if you go at a quiet time you could pretty much have the place to yourself.
