We came here on a lovely sunny, but cold and frosty day. The climb to the top was quite steep, but had 'flat bits' en route where you could stop and get your breath back if you needed to. At the top was the old...More

A lovely walk up a very steep hill but worth every breath, a very special monument to visit. We didn't follow the path which made it extremely difficult.

We arrived at the top in time to see the sunset and watch the surrounding area disappear under mists. There were people drumming as the sun sank below the horizon. An experience I will never forget.

Beautiful views from the top. Very steep so be prepared for the trek to the top. Don't bother if it's not a clear day.

The fog cleared just enough to get an exceptional view of the surrounds from here. Looking towards the abbey, etc made the climb worthwhile.

I have heard that Glastonbury is the heart chakra of the world, but is the Tor the pinnacle of that heart? Not sure, as there are many sacred places in Glastonbury. The whole area may be the heart chakra, but perhaps you... More

From the high street to the bottom of the hill is probably 15 to 20min depending on how briskly you walk. Up the Tor itself, I would say another 15 to 20min

About 20/25 minutes but far easier to get the Tor bus and walk back.
