1. Glastonbury, Nicholas Cage
Famous for starring in mega-grossing Hollywood blockbusters such as ‘The Rock’, ‘National Treasure’ and ‘Kickass’, Nicholas Cage seems to have swapped the glamour of Los Angeles for the peace and quiet of sleepy Glastonbury. He’s regularly sighted in and around Glastonbury in central Somerset, and is rumoured to have a home somewhere in Baltonsborough, in the surrounding countryside.
