Notices

Covid-19 Update

Following recent government guidance we ask all visitors to Glastonbury Abbey from the 8th of August to wear a face covering in all buildings on site. This includes the visitor centre(entry & exit), museum, Abbot’s Kitchen, the shop and St. Patrick’s Chapel. A face covering is not required while in the open grounds. We thank all of our visitors and members for following the safety guidance while on site

Please help the abbey today. All donations go towards the 3000 per day it costs to maintain the abbey for today and future generations.

We are connected with legend to a degree that is unparalleled by any other abbey in England. Since Medieval times, the abbey has held legendary status as the earliest Christian foundation in Britain linked to Joseph of Arimathea and the burial place of King Arthur. Today it is a tranquil setting where you can discover the stories, explore the accredited museum and enjoy a packed events calendar.
