Well kept gardens, shop, and park surround this lovely serene spot. Magical waters run throughout and fill you with calm... Don't miss it...

The Chalice Well Garden is not to be missed if you're in Glastonbury. The well itself is beautiful, but the entire garden is as well. The garden has been intentionally designed to offer many secluded spots for quite meditation and contemplation, and there are two sites where there are signs to remind visitors that these are meant to be places...

We are hoping to move to Glastonbury soon and The Chalice Well is one of the reasons why we have chosen to do this. It is the most beautiful and serene places in which to meditate and refresh tired spirits. I am always drawn to it and have recently become a Companion.

I regard myself as a spiritual person and have visited many places where reality is 'thin', between the two worlds. With huge disappointment, I have to say that I sensed little of this at the Chalice Well Gardens. We visited, late afternoon, in early October. The weather was beautiful, but, unfortunately the wind was in a direction to carry intense... More

This garden is very peaceful and is divided into smaller gardens with different plantings. There are a number of seats and benches for those wanting to sit and relax, meditate or just enjoy the surroundings.

If you can go when there aren't a lot of crowds, then you will find this as a peaceful, powerful, spiritual place.

The Chalice well garden is a small beautiful garden of tranquility and peace where silence and meditation are encouraged. A few benches are provided for those wanting to spend some time absorbing the lovely surroundings; the red water flowing from the spring where it is said the Holy Grail was washed or perhaps buried by Joseph of Arimathea , the...

Chalice well garden is close to the base of the tor. A tranquil garden of peace with the world famous red spring which flows from the lion well head. Further down the garden is the plunge pool, bring a towel if your intending to go for a dip

I have been coming here ever since I was tiny, it's so peaceful and amazing. The rooms are comfy and quiet, (although on the small side, but that's all you need). The kitchens are 100% vegetarian, which is rare to find and such a relief. The dining room and kitchen are large and the former is incredibly charming. The gardens... More
