M32***23Glastonbury Abbey (Glastonbury Abbey) in the heart of Glastonbury is the place where the legendary King Arthur and Queen Guinevere were buried. The stone tower (Glastonbury Tor) on the top of the hill, a half-hour walk from the monastery, is said to be the gateway to the mysterious kingdom of Avalon. There is a paid parking lot on the side of the monastery, which is quite adequate. There is a small bus called Tor Bus in the parking lot, which runs every half an hour and can reach the foot of Glastonbury Tor. It is recommended to take a bus to Tor, because there is no parking lot within half an hour’s walk around Tor. Those who have very strong feet and love to hike will make another discussion. You can see the tall Tor in the courtyard of the monastery, so don't worry about getting lost.

Mrs月半Wells Wells, England's smallest city, is not far from Bath, and the bus is about an hour away. The city's niche can't find her information at all in the location. However, in the 15 century, the town of Wells was deprived of the important religious position because it was integrated with the Wells District in 1245. Until 2018, Wells, with a population of about 12,000, was the smallest city in England (the “City” is the only town in England to be granted city status by the royal family). Wells was the city, and the cathedral was almost the only reason. The church was first built in the early 8th century AD and was rebuilt in the early 13th century. It was designed in the arches that were popular at the time, and later called the "Gothic" building. Welles Cathedral was the first Gothic church in Britain to be built from foundation to roof. The Jesse Window on the east side of the choir table retains 14th-century stained glass. Only three churches in England retain the original medieval colored windows (two others are the Gloucester and York cathedrals crowned by Henry III) due to the 16th century movement of Henry VIII to close the monastery and the two world wars But the 12th century Gothic style has just begun to become popular in France, and the architects of Wells apparently only heard of the arches but had not learned how to build them tall, and the "slaughty" architects built the "Gothic" Wells Cathedral into a three-story structure similar to a small Romanesque window But accidentally recorded the evolution of the Gothic style in Britain. The church does not need tickets and there is a counter at the door to receive voluntary donations. The church has a free hour-long explanation almost every hour. The crutches of the volunteer, Grandpa, spoke the history of the church with a lively, occasional laughter.
