The Local Area Guide to living in Glastonbury

Although its name is now synonymous with the massive music festival that takes place in the nearby village of Pilton, Glastonbury is a peaceful English town shrouded in a mystery all of its own. Glastonbury Tor rises in the distance, topped with a ruin of a 15th century church. This area is protected by the National Trust, and provides a memorable walk from the town centre. From here visitors can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding Somerset countryside, including the Ham Wall National Nature Reserve. There's a great deal of mythology surrounding Glastonbury, with some believing it has connections to everything from King Arthur to the Holy Grail. There's certainly an alternative vibe to this quaint market town, and the spirit of the 1960s remains in its multitude of crystal shops and new age bookstores.

Glastonbury's lengthy history can be explored walking around its well-preserved town centre, which is home to a number of secluded churches and a town hall dating back to the early 1800s.

Information about the local residents

Glastonbury is known for its bohemian vibe and new age sites, and this sleepy English town experienced a boom in the 1960s as scores of the hippie generation moved into town and decided to stay. According to the 2011 census, nearly 9,000 residents permanently reside in Glastonbury, although the town continues to grow due to its high quality of life and unique reputation. This includes a number of professionals, families, and those of retirement age. The population tends to increase during the summer, when the town is visited by tourists from the UK and abroad, drawn to the medieval Abbey and pagan mythology of Glastonbury as well as the notoriety of its festival.

Nearby Schools

Within Glastonbury, primary students are served by two primary schools. Both St John's CofE infants and St Benedict's CofE junior have received 'Good' rankings from Ofsted. Glastonbury falls into the catchment area of St Dunstan's at the secondary level, which is named after an abbot of Glastonbury Abbey and eventual Archbishop of Canterbury. St Dunstan's has recently been given a £1.2 million facelift in 1998, adding an additional sports hall and science block. In 2004, the school was designated as a specialist Arts College and it's also known for its support for special education students. Pupils in Glastonbury may also choose to go on to Strode College in the nearby village of Street, which offers A-levels and BTECs in a number of subject areas.

Getting Around

There's an array of services linking Glastonbury with nearby cities including Bristol and Bath, as well as coach and rail links further afield to London. Hourly bus services connect Glastonbury to Bristol, Wells, and Yeovil. First Bus also operates a regular service to Bath and Taunton. There's also a new service courtesy of WebberBus connecting Bridgwater, Street, Glastonbury, and Wells. National Express and Berry's Coaches both run a daily service to and from London. The nearest rail station is at Castle Cary, a good 10 miles away, but from here there are regular services to London as well. Many residents commute to Bristol, which is an hour's drive away via the M5 and A303.

Local Shops

Glastonbury's New Age leanings make it a fascinating place to shop for those who admire crystals, gemstones, and antiquarian bric-a-brac. The historic town centre boasts a seemingly endless array of cosy tea shops, new age emporiums, and quirky independent boutiques. Organic food coops, craft bakeries, and esoteric bookshops round out the selection of shopping opportunities in Glastonbury. Highlights include the local artworks at the Facets of Avalon art gallery, the glittering baubles at The Crystal Man, and the unusual accessories at the Chalice Well Bookshop and Gifts.
