Look at the incredible glastonbury peninsula landscape and the fact that there was an important 200 bc iron age settlement and others nearby in all directions.
If glastonbury with its sacred springs wasn't an important religious site to the druids and every other ancient briton before them well im at a loss where was !.

There are important Iron Age settlements all over Britain, some rather bigger than the one at Glastonbury. It doesn't follow that a population centre was necessarily a religious centre, although no doubt the residents practiced their religion there, in whatever form it took. Nor does it necessarily follow that the settlement had anything to do with the druids because there are some springs there. In the absence of any evidence, this is in the realms of the speculative at best.
