Glastonbury Tor in south west England is a magical and beautiful place. Myths and legends surround it...some say it is the entrance to the fabled Isle of Avalon, and that it is tied closely with the legends of King Arthur and the Holy Grail. Even if none of that holds any interest for you, the Tor and the nearby Chalice Well and garden (said to be the final resting place of the Holy Grail) are incredibly beautiful and well worth a visit!
