Worthy Lane, Shepton Mallet, BA4 4BY
Worthy Farm, home of the World-renowned Glastonbury Music and Festival of Performing Arts, is open to the public for camping around the peak of the Perseids meteor shower. This means it is possible to view one of the best shooting star displays from one of the most endearing locations!
So sit back and relax with family, friends and your fellow campers in the darkness of the Stone Circle field, and watch as many as 80 meteors per hour at the peak on the night of Thursday 12th August into the early hours of Friday 13th August. The nights either side of this date should be awesome too!
Prio booking is required! For full details, including on how to book, see the Worthy Pastures website.
