I recently visited the garden and found it so beautiful. The garden was lovely and quiet and it a nice place to go if you want to relax, reflect and enjoy the nature. The well is quite popular so expect to wait a few minutes before you can sit around the well. Hopefully I will revisit the garden again.

Beautiful, tranquil and spiritual! The gardens are so well kept and for a minimal entry fee, you can take your time and walk through the beautiful grounds, find a quiet place to just sit and be. Soak your feet in the natural, iron rich water that runs through the garden or take a drink from the tap. Many healing has... More

A blessed oasis of peace and quiet. The Chalice Well is home to an ancient water source in Glastonbury. It's a place of healing and meditation, filled with hidden garden nooks. The waters cascade down stepped waterways to a beautiful vesica piscis at the bottom. The water is ice cold and visitors are encouraged to wade in one of the... More

Lovely as usual, garden a treat, so well-tended, and that special 'Chalice well' stillness and peace. This special place has retained its particular tranquillity for many years, and I much appreciate that.

Well worth a visit - very beautiful all year round, lots of tranquil spaces to 'just be'. The garden has many different areas and plants, and there's a chance to drink the well waters and even take a dip if you're brave!

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.
