There are many myths and legends associated with the Tor – it is the home of Gwyn ap Nudd, the Lord of the Underworld, and a place where the fairy folk live. See the Glastonbury Tor website for more myth & history. The Tor is now owned and cared for by the National Trust and there is free access to the public at all times.
There are no car parks at the Tor. The nearest fee paying car park is at Draper and Co on Chilkwell St. (2 mins walk).
- Mobility parking for blue and orange badgeholders only in Stonedown Lane
- The paths up to the top of the Tor are concrete. There are kissing gates at each entrance
- There is a bench about halfway up the Tor on each path
- There are seats at the top in the tower
Between April & October the Tor Bus runs between the Magdalene Street car park and the base of the Tor.
