    You can take a National Express coach, though their times are not really convenient.

    Not an easy journey! Other than National Express coach direct as mentioned above, he most straightforward way seems to be to take a train or coach to Bristol then a local bus from there to Glastonbury.

    The 376 bus (First Somerset and Avon bus company) runs every half hour on weekdays and Saturdays between Bristol and Glastonbury, every hour on Sundays and Holidays. Sometimes a change of bus is needed in Wells to a number 29 or 377. That journey is about 1 hour 20 minutes. Buses start from Bristol Bus Station and stop at the Temple Meads railway station on their way to Glastonbury.

    firstgroup.com/ukbus/southwe... for bus times in detail.

    Other towns nearer Glastonbury do not have direct links and would be an even more tedious journey.

    I hope that helps.

    If you are heading for the Glastonbury Festival then National Express will have buses going direct just for the festival but not sure when that is.

    The Festival is at the end of August. In addition to the extra coaches, there is a special bus service from Castle Cary station.

    Castle Cary station is in fact the nearest to Glastonbury, but no buses normally operate over the roads in between.
