Glastonbury Abbey is connected with legend to a degree that is unparalleled by any other abbey in England. Since Medieval times, the abbey has held legendary status as the earliest Christian foundation in Britain linked to Joseph of Arimathea and the burial place of King Arthur. The abbey's 36 acres of grounds offer a calm and relaxing outdoor space right in the centre of Glastonbury. Visitors can spend the day walking, relaxing and visiting the different areas of the grounds including the wildlife area, orchard, medieval kitchen garden as well as the spectacular ruins and the 14th century Abbot's Kitchen. The museum offers insights into the history of the abbey and has a collection of important historical objects on display. Your ticket is valid for the whole day of your visit and you may come and go throughout the day.
