There was a retreat going on for the summer. £10 for 30 minute sessions on Reiki, Reflexology and other natural therapies. It was amazing value. And just the opportunity to sit an mediate in the amazing gardens. A very peaceful and serene setting.

It is about £5 per adult for admission and you can revisit same day on production of a ticket which you get on admission. The garden has 8 main areas and your map which you get for free will...

I loved visiting here although I didn't have enough time to see that much. It's a beautiful place! Would liked to have seen the Chalice Well itself, but was too crowded by New Agers humming and swaying. (I wonder if they know they're worshiping the top of a Medieval well house.) Still beautiful if you can avoid the chanters.

If you go with an open mind then be prepared to discover another realm in life. There is something very special about this place, very deep. I left feeling an elation that hasn't left me yet ! The well head is stunning and you will find yourself just standing looking and paying silent homage. The water tastes incredible ! I... More

The Chalice Well gardens are a beautiful quiet space. Whether you just fancy seeing the planting, or want to find a hidden corner to meditate for a few minutes - this is the place to come. There is always something lovely to see, all year round. As well as the Chalice Well itself, there is the lion head fountain -... More

Chalice Wells garden is as beautiful in real life as it is on the DVD which inspired me to go to Glastonbury. You can buy a bottle for you chalice water at the entrance. You can paddle in the cool pool of the water or simply meditate there. A very beautiful place.

Naturally beautiful! The entrance fee is cheap, remember to take your own bottle to fill with spring water :D Floor is very slippy so wear decent shoes.

I loved Chalice Well Gardens. It is located at the foot of Glastonbury Tor and is only about £4 to get in. Its absolutely peaceful and welcoming. We visited on the summer solstice which was just a lovely time to visit.
