One of my favorite places I visited in Britain was Glastonbury Abbey.
The abbey itself is now in ruins as it was dissolved by Henry VIII during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1500s. However, there is something so romantic about these ruins. I don't know if it's because they house the legendary tomb of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, or if it was because the rain made everything seem so green or what, but it holds a special place in my heart.
Once the richest abbey in Britain, the original Saxon/Norman church was destroyed by fire in 1184. It was rebuilt with even greater splendor. You can read more about its history here.
Seeing places like this on an almost daily basis is one of the things I miss desperately about living in Britain. While we have things that are 100 years old in my town, or even 150 years, you just don't ever come across a building like this, ruins or not.
One of these days, I will get back there...One of these days...
