Glastonbury is reputed to have had the oldest Christian Church in England and has a long history as a place of pilgrimage. In more recent times it has attracted 'pilgrims' from many faiths and beliefs and remains a spiritual centre to this day.

Glastonbury is reputed to be the birthplace of Christianity in England and remains a centre of Christian Pilgrimage to this day. Although the Abbey is in ruins it remains a centre of worship throughout the year.

Other Paths
In recent years the town has become a place of pilgrimage for visitors of faiths other than Christianity.

Chalice Well is a World Peace Garden. A place of peace and tranquility for those of all faiths and none. These festivals are grounded in common principles of welcome, stillness, silence, reflection, grace, communion, community, relationship, celebration, gratitude and blessing. That people gather together, not in a formalised building or structure of worship, but in a beautiful garden, allows a shared acknowledgement of the sacred and divine that transcends borders and differences.
