BBy carY CAR:

From the North, via the M5, leave at J23 and follow the A39 for about 12 miles to Glastonbury.

From London, take the M3 west, leave at J8 and follow the A303 past Salisbury. Then you have a choice:

  • Either branch onto the A36 at Deptford Junction and follow it past Warminster to the Cley Hill Roundabout where you take the A362 as far as it goes, turn left onto the A361 and follow all the way to Glastonbury.
  • Alternatively (or if you miss the junction as is easy to do), continue on the A303 past Wincanton and Sparkford, to the Podimore roundabout. Then take the A372 towards Langport for about a mile and turn right onto the B3151 (signposted to Somerton and Street and eventually Glastonbury).

The second route is only slightly longer but with fewer chances to go wrong, if unfamiliar with the route.
