Theorized to be the oldest Christian Church of England, the Glastonbury Cathedral today can be found in ruins. The Cathedral ruins are by far the best I have seen of historical England. You are able to wander around the lush fields of the Cathedral and view the ruins closely. By standing at the base of the Cathedral, you can imagine how glorious it must have been. In addition to the Cathedral Ruins, you are also able to see the final resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere. Marked by a honorary plaque, it is not difficult to find the final resting place of these historical figures. Also found on the grounds are the Abbott's Kitchen, a perfect example of a medieval kitchen. Daily demonstrations of the kitchen are also available.
The grounds are easily accessible to people of all abilities. There are walking paths to the popular tourist areas. There is also a small museum at the entrance to the grounds that covers the history and includes a model of what the Cathedral looked like in its time. The cost of visiting the Cathedral is 4.50 pounds. This includes a small map and outline describing the history of the Cathedral.
