Glastonbury Tourist Information Centre |

I’m incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to work on such a high profile website. The Glastonbury Tourist Information Centre website is the place to find all information on Glastonbury, Street and other neighbouring towns and villages.

The Problem

The Glastonbury Tourist Information Centre website is a directory website containing valuable information about Glastonbury and neighbouring towns & villages. It was getting very outdated and needed a complete new, clean and contemporary design that still showed the diversity of Glastonbury. It also lacked a usable and efficient content management system which was problematic especially with the quantity of content on the website. You can find information on the Glastonbury Tourist Information Centre website for:

  • Accommodation
  • Attractions
  • Events
  • Eateries
  • Shops

The website also required a news section to publish articles and a shop with basic e-commerce functionality. It also required a partner site for the neighbouring town of Street at

The Solution

I redesigned the site using many standard design principles and modern techniques. The look and feel is very contemporary with the use of a bold and striking imagery and colours as you first enter the site. Bright colours are utilised throughout the website to promote Glastonbury’s colourful nature and also separate sections of the site so that it is clear where you are and what you are viewing at all times.

The previous content management system was replaced with a brand new one, much more suited to the site. It was replaced with WordPress because of its extensive set of features and plugins that I knew would be suitable for the job as well as making it easy to manage. WordPress had to be customised to suite the needs of the website and make it as easy as possible to manage the large amount of content.

The same site was used for both and This meant the site could be centrally managed and would draw all traffic into a central place which is great for search engine optimisation.

What did I do on this project?


I designed this website from scratch starting with an initial concept and wireframe and moving onto the final designed website. Glastonbury Tourist Information Centre is a large website so their has been extra attention to detail with the usability of the website.

Responsive Web Design & Development

Using the latest tools and techniques I set out to create an advanced responsive website suitable for all devices regardless of size or browser. This meets all of the recommended development techniques as well as being mobile friendly and most importantly user friendly. This website was built using LESS css and a custom built framework built by myself.

CMS integration – WordPress

I used WordPress for this project as the basic CMS and built upon it to get the functionality the website required. This is quite a large website but fairly strait forward, taking advantage of the basic WordPress functionality and adding some additional functionality including the ability to add places to the directory with the relevant information, track site traffic and optimise the website for search engines.
