Relaxing & calm place to visit

The gardens are particularly lovely in the summer & they have a great shop there as well selling unusual gifts.

We love to go to the Well, so much peace and quiet. Gives you time to reflect. You can walk through the water, was a bit cold but well worth the effort. Drink as much of the water as you would like, does make you feel rejuvenated. Just across the road is Drapers shoe makers, well worth popping in. Bought... More

The gardens are beautiful and the lore is tangibly felt. I wonderful place for connecting with nature, feeling the presence of spirit and contemplating the silence of your own heart. It will grab you and call you back.

In the shadow of Glastonbury Tor, these gardens with their flowing pools and waterfalls are beautiful and peaceful in every season.

A quiet, peaceful spot at the base of the Tor. We purchased a Chalice Well water bottle and filled it with the special drink. It is an acquired taste but worth a try. What a contrast to the taste of the White Spring water. The aroma of spring flowers --- the sound of running water - one can surely find... More

A very special and unique place, centred around the "Red" or Chalybeate Spring running off the Tor, the garden doubles as an outdoor temple/ haven for spiritual contemplation and a focus for gardening through love and eco principles. Though small there are plenty of nooks and quiet corners where one can rest and refresh; where one can drink the strongly... More

I've visited Chalice Well garden on several occasions. In 2010 I attended a 3 day retreat at St Michael Lodge and was fortunate to have unlimited access to the garden. Since then I always visit when in Glastonbury. The gardens are meticulously maintained, you can drink the sacred spring water from the Lion's head and there's a place on the... More

One of my favourite places in Somerset. Has a calm, reviving and tranquil energy that leaves you refreshed and relaxed after spending time here. I visit with friends but also by myself. The flowers and shrubs throughout the seasons are constantly changing and it's always so beautiful. You can re-enter the garden throughout the day with the one entry fee.... More
