Very peaceful and relaxing. Was lovely to have the option of paddling in the healing waters and also being able to drink from them. Was lovely and quiet when we visited so almost had the garden to ourselves. Would defo visit again.

The gardens were beautifully laid out and it was a serene place to spend some time. Having just got over a bad illness I am sure the waters will help too.

I've been to the well on several occasions and it never seizes to amaze me. The garden is wonderful and you can easily spend a day, walking around and sitting here and there, in all those secluded spots just enjoying the atmosphere

I love this place so my review is biased. I am in love with this garden so much so I am now a chalice well companion. Staff are great. Just can't fault it.

Anywhere that can make my kids sit in silence on a bench looking at a water feature whilst sipping a glass of elderberry must have mystic powers! Like most their age, they're normally driven like they've downed a quart of coffee. This place is just so mystical and calm. I came to show the family the gardens and well and... More

after descending from the tor we headed straight in here. It had been recommended by a work colleague so thought we would try it. A very quiet and peaceful place. a few people were meditating or sitting quietly in the little areas. There were loads of small marquees erected around the place - something had obviously been going on but... More

I'm an occasional visitor to Glastonbury, and have discovered the Chalice Well and associated gardens to be one of the most beautiful meditative spots anywhere locally.

What a dream this attraction is, lots of different garden 'rooms' where you can relax, meditate or generally unwind letting the peaceful atmosphere drift over you leaving you feeling re charged. The water can be sampled but to be honest only do this if you don't mid the taste of iron, it really does taste strong but is said to... More
