Street is a safe and friendly village in the county of Somerset two miles south-west of Glastonbury. It is the original location and headquarters of the world famous Clarks Shoes. It is home to the Clarks Shoe museum and the very popular retail outlet centre Clarks Shopping Village. Street is perfectly located in the heart of the South West with easy access to the many world class attractions including the cathedral city of Wells, Wookey Hole and the Roman Baths.
Glastonbury itself is well known, not only for its connections with the history of Christianity and the majestic ruins of its abbey, but also for its association with the legend of King Arthur, who, along with his wife Guinevere, is reputed to be buried in the Abbey grounds. History myth and legend combine in such a way that most visitors cannot fail to sense the powerful ambience of the area, which is now internationally renowned as a centre for New Age culture and spiritual healing.
Glastonbury Tor is a famous landmark, steeped in legend and rising 525 feet above sea level topped by the tower of the ruined medieval church of St. Michael. The nearby extensive and beautiful ruins of the Glastonbury abbey were largely destroyed during Henry VIII's Reformation - although a small museum contains a model of the grounds of the monastery and other architectural exhibits.
Somerset Rural Life Museum is also located nearby and is a fascinating folk museum, centred around a 14th century abbey barn. The museum features displays on society in the past and on former agricultural and industrial activities.
