Glastonbury – my favourite place on earth

Beautiful architecture ruins in Glastonbury

As we are in the middle of the craziness of moving right now, I thought I would reflect on the peaceful haven of Glastonbury, which is one of my favourite places on earth…

Beautiful architecture ruins in Glastonbury

The old Abbey, so ancient and beautiful, holds a particular place in my heart as it was the place I first met some of my “online friends” and even though it was pouring with rain, the day was just magical…

bare feet stood on concrete steps

There are steps that just inspire dreams of all the people who have ever walked down them…

And places of such beauty that even Angel feather lie there, waiting to be found…


Places of sweet beauty and silence, where my friend and I sat and sang “Amazing Grace” and listened to it echo round the dark hall before we were joined by a man and woman who sang the most gloriously haunting song in a language neither of us understood…

(sorry for the blurry picture, it was hard to get a good photo without ruining the beautiful glow)

And then there are all the wonderful places to sit and meditate within the Chalice Well Gardens

Even the shops are magical…

Oh, Glastonbury, how I love thee and long to return in the not-too-distant future.

Tell me, what is your favourite place on earth and why?

    You know this is my favourite place in the world too. Your post and the pics make my heart ache… I soo want to go to Glastonbury this year. But flights are just too expensive. Not even the thought of travelling several other countries instead this year (including NZ, a dream of mine for 6 years), can make up for probably not being able to go to Glastonbury this year… sad sad… its just so magical… it feels like “home”…

Don't be shy, join in and let us know what you think!
