Glastonbury offers more than the obvious

Glastonbury offers more than the obvious

Of course Glastonbury is most famous for its music festival but it has plenty more to offer people looking to relocate to Somerset.

Although June sees more than 100,000 people come to town, the area is actually relatively peaceful the rest of the year with around 8,000 calling it home.

It is set in a beautiful location and there are a number of great places to talk a walk. There are the Somerset Levels to explore or the Tor hill to conquer.

Glastonbury also has a rich history and there are suggestions it was a popular location for King Arthur and may hold the key to finding the Holy Grail.

For those relocating with families, Glastonbury has a number of schooling options on offer. As well as a number of primary schools, there is St Dunstan's Secondary for older children and sixth form education is provided by Strode College.

People looking for property for sale in Glastonbury will also be impressed by the local sporting opportunities - both to watch and partake.

The Somerset village is home to Glastonbury Football Club and Glastonbury Cricket Club so there are plenty of chances to see the local team in action.

For those who wish to raise their own heart rates, then there is the Glastonbury Leisure Centre. Located in the centre of the town, the facility has a fully equipped, air conditioned fitness gym and a studio, which offers a number of exercise classes. There is also a large sports hall, tennis courts and a sports pitch.

In terms of day trips, Glastonbury is close to a number of major towns and cities, Weston-super-Mare, Bristol and Bridgwater. For those planning a longer trip, the M5 is relatively close by and provides easy access to Exeter and Birmingham.

There is little doubt that the almost annual event of Glastonbury has brought a number of benefits to the region and this has helped to boost the town's international profile - something that may be reflected in the local housing market.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801708083-ADNFCR
