Glastonbury has a high street like no other town
No empty shops, no large retail chain stores. Instead, both sides of the street are crammed with interesting shops selling all manner of fabulous things. Down every side street and alleyway are yet more tucked-away treasures.
There is a magical, whimsical air to Glastonbury at any time of year
But add in some festive fairy lights and an atmosphere of Christmas excitement and you could be forgiven for imagining you have time travelled to Dickens day. You may bump into a grumbling Ebenezer Scrooge or hear Tiny Tim singing a Christmas Carol.
What could be more Christmassy than a toy shop? Little Imps Toy Store makes even grown-ups believe that Santa might bring something down the chimney for them this year.
A book-shaped parcel with your name on it is a double delight – what book could it be inside? What wonders wait within its cover? Gothic Image have a title to suit everyone.
Whether you are shopping or just having a wander around to soak up the festive atmosphere peering into the shop windows on the high street this Christmas is a gift all by itself.
Glastonbury High Street is just a short walk away from Middlewick Holiday Cottages. Alongside the many varied shops are pubs and cafes, Glastonbury Abbey, and St John’s Church, all well worth a visit. Call in and see the Shining Branches display.
