Glastonbury Stories launches at Glastonbury Abbey

We are thrilled to announce that our latest immersive adventure, Glastonbury Stories, has launched at the world famous Glastonbury Abbey.

Glastonbury Abbey attracts over 100,000 visitors each year and is famous for its stories spanning millennia, including Joseph of Arimathea and the legends of King Arthur - including his possible burial site within the ruined abbey. Glastonbury Stories invites abbey visitors to embark on a quest through time, exploring its  rich, evocative history as they journey across the site.

Our adventure casts visitors in the role of a visting pilgrim, following in the footsteps of so many before them. But their task is about more than making the pilgrimage. You see, Glastonbury Abbey is a special place, a thin place, where time does not work in the same way as elsewhere.

You can reach back, and history can reach forward. Medieval artefacts, voices of the past, and even long-lost buildings may slip through portals in time to the present day.

Those who to take up this quest will overhear conversations from long ago and help return lost artefacts to their proper owners, healing these rifts in time. Some may even get a precious glimpse back through time to ghostly echoes of the buildings that once so proudly stood on the site.

So head down to Glastonbury Abbey today, immerse yourself in its astonishing history and, if you dare, take on the challenge of keeping the abbey and its stories safe for generations to come.

The Glastonbury Stories app is free to download and use, and is available on the app stores now. For more details and to download the app on iOS or Android please visit the Glastonbury Abbey website here.
