Glasntonbury is probably most famous for the yearly music festival that takes place there. The town itself is very English feeling, and very pleasant to spend time in. Even though it is very busy during the summer months with tourists (and even when the music festival is not on), the High Street has resisted over-commercialisation and not lost its charm. This town is a must see for any traveller of England, there is a rich diversity of hippies, new agers, greens and dreadlocked crusties. A wealth of bookstores everywhere selling wares on the occult, stone circles, aliens, pyramids and so on. We went into a cafe and waited a long time for our veggie burgers, when we went to ask in our politest voices where they might have got to, we noticed a sign saying that in this place everything is done slowly, and we need to be at peace (or words to that effect) - very charming, but a bit challenging when you have small hungry kids not nuanced in the fine art of chilling out! The burgers did arrive in the end and were excellent. Can't remember the name of the place, it was on the high street. If you do visit Glastonbury, remember to head on up to the tor.
