All together, inclusive of a ticket, travel, a tent, a sleeping bag and spending money, you’d be looking at a whopping £600 to go to Glastonbury. So here are five great alternative holidays and activities you could bag yourself for the same price (and less!) as the infamous Glasto ticket. 1. Fly through a Welsh Quarry Instead of screaming at your favourite artists at Glasto, you can get your adrenaline fix at Zip World in Penryhn Quarry, Bethesda. Velocity is the fastest zip line in the world, reaching speeds of more than 100mph, and the longest in Europe. The zip gives you stunning views of surrounding Snowdonia and maybe even the Isle of Man on a clear day! Prices for Velocity start at £60 per person, with many other cheaper (and slower!) options starting from £15 for adults and £7.50 for children.
