    Getting A Ticket

    by RandomDreamer Written Nov 19, 2005

    Fondest memory: Before you worry about the rain, the toilets, which bands you're going to see, what you're going to eat, where you're going to pitch camp, how you're going to get there etc etc there's one majorly difficult obstacle you muct overcome first.... getting a ticket.

    They usually sell out within 3 hours of going on sale and tend to go on sale in April but the exact date is different each year. www.aloud.com is the best resource for purchasing tickets and will give information before hand. Basically though, getting a ticket is not an easy task.

    They are available online and by phone. Basically, you have to be awake and ready to go when they go on sale and try persistently until you succeed. You can only buy two tickets and need to give the names and addresses of who the tickets are going to at time of purchase. Therefore you need to co-ordinate with your travelling companions who's buying who's ticket etc.

    Esentially, work in a pair. One of you try continuously clicking the web link until you get lucky and reach the payment page (only a certain number of people can connect to the server at any one time) and the other try relentlessly ringing the phone number until you get through. It's tough... you may not get lucky but persistence will usually pay off and don't give up until the tickets are sold out... then relax!

    View of Glastonbury Tor

    by aliante1981 Written Jul 3, 2005

    Favorite thing: There's a magnificent view from a hill when one is driving from Bristol to Wells: Wells Cathedral below and Glastonbury Tor away in the distance.

    OK, the postcard here is a different one, but trust me - that view is a marvel!

    King Arthur's Realm

    by RACCOON1 Updated Jul 12, 2004

    Favorite thing: The supposed grave of King Arthur is located in Glastonbury .

    The legend of King Arthur probably had its roots in and around 410 AD when the Romans withdrew from Britain.

    There is some evidence that King Arthur was Roman or a Roman Briton.

    Aftre that you cane believe what ever you want .

    Food Glorious Food!!

    by greebo Written Oct 7, 2002

    Favorite thing: In the buttery there is a display of the types of food the abbot would have eaten. However, I wouldnt sample any of the food on the table as it has been there for days and you might not feel so good after eating it. Certainly after smelling some of it, you really wouldnt want to eat it.

    View on City of Wells, taken from Glastonbury Tor

    by Roeffie Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: The athmosphere of the town has something mysterious, because of the spiritual look and feel of many shops, inns bars and so on. Then a ruin of an old abbey in the middel of the towncentre and on to of that a very mysterious tower high above the town on a very steep hill.
