Fodor's Review

At the foot of Glastonbury Tor is Chalice Well, the legendary burial place of the Grail. It's a stiff climb up the tor, but your reward is the fabulous view across the Vale of Avalon. At the top stands a ruined tower, all that remains of St. Michael's Church, which collapsed after a landslide in 1271. Take the Glastonbury Tor bus to the base of the hill.
