I have again been blessed enough to visit this oasis of peace. Today was the Thanksgiving to Water Ceremony. This was a profound and truthful experience, shared by many from all over the world. I once again found my place in the Healing Pool, my favourite area to rest and be. This is so much more than a visitor attraction... More

If you just want a peaceful sit, this is the place. Gardens are on multiple levels with water running throughout. However they did not strike me as anything special.

If you want to find a quiet place of serenity and contemplation then Chalice Well is perfect. There are many quiet places within the compound where you can sit and enjoy the peace, meditate, read or just 'be'. The waters from the springs are said to have healing properties if drunk. Its history is interlinked with that of the Tor... More

The proprietors of this place has done a good job building a garden & several pools around the well. This well is also called the "Red Spring of Avalon." This property is managed quite well (no pun intended) & is nice to visit for a peaceful stroll (for a small donation). The "red water" flowing in this garden is believed... More

The gardens are lovely and very well kept. Dipped our feet in the healing pool and drank the water nearby. The only disappointment was on reaching the well a group of 10/12 people were sitting around the well enclosure meditating so we were not able to get close to the well until they had finished.

Whenever I visit Glastonbury I always try to fit in a visit to the Chalice Well. The gardens are beautiful and well kept and a hushed visit to the tranquility and serenity of the Chalice Well is a must. Entry to the the Chalice Well Gardens is so very reasonable and to be able to fill up with the waters... More

This a really wonderful peaceful place, with beautiful flowers and lots of private places for peaceful reflection. You can walk there or catch the bus from the high street parking area. Unfortunately we were limited in time as we had to get the bus back and there is a limited service over lunchtime. I will definitely be going back and... More
