Public Transport

London to Glastonbury

  • Quickest but most expensive. The tains from Paddington – London to Castle Cary approximately 1½ hours plus taxi (best pre booked) about 25 minutes.
  • Trains from Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads. Walk to main road and the bus stop is usually on the right, bus 376 to Glastonbury Town Hall. It is recommended a taxi ,about 5 minutes , (taxi rank opposite) from the Town Hall to Tordown as it is all up hill and with luggage can take some time, 20 minutes walk. If you prefer to walk try getting off the bus at the top of the High Street just after the bus turns right in Glastonbury, this is before the Town Hall; alternatively if it is day time travel you could try the Tor Bus which runs from the carpark next to the Town Hall.
  • Coach from Victoria Coach Station London leaves about 17.30 arrives about 22.30 Glastonbury. Return journey leaves Glastonbury 6.45 in the morning when taxis are expensive and in short supply . This is a very cheap way of travel but you lose over one day of your stay .
