What You Can Expect
We leave central London at 8:00am, departing for Glastonbury in a westerly direction, passing through England's smallest Cathedral city of Wells. You will arrive in Glastonbury around 11:30am. The excitement builds as you will hear about the legend of King Arthur. The area is known for it's mythical connections to the fabled hero.
You will also have free time in Glastonbury to visit attractions such as the Abbey,as well as time to explore the ruins of St. Michael’s Church, taking pride of place on Glastonbury Tor. The church was said to be destroyed by a powerful earthquake during the dark ages. The Tor is also connected with King Arthur, and folklore has it that it is the mystical Isle of Avalon. You will also get to visit the famous Glastonbury Thorn; a site rumored to have been visited by Joseph of Arimithea carrying the Holy Grail. It is believed he climbed Wearyall Hill, whose name comes from his literal proclamation that 'we are weary all'. He then planted his staff in the ground and the following morning the staff had taken root, and had grown into the miraculous thorn tree still there today.
At around 2:30pm we set off through the Somerset countryside towards the charming English Town of Cheddar, where there will be a stop to explore the towns shops and the famous gorge, which is, in fact, Britain’s second greatest natural wonder. Upon arrival, you will be given free time to explore the village, gorge, and caves. Perhaps you could visit the famous Gough's Cave, which contains the Cheddar Yeo, the largest underground river system in Britain (admission not included).
At approximately 4:30pm, leave Cheddar for your return journey to London. As you travel on through the famous Cheddar Gorge, keep a lookout for the wild goats clinging to the cliffs. At approximately 7.45pm we will arrive back in London.
