As a family we visited here on a snowy day. The well is reasonably priced to enter and you may also purchase plastic bottles to fill up with the water from the spring if you wish. It is a peaceful place, no doubt. And is not marred by people who disrespect the fact that many visit here for abit of... More

What a magical, peaceful place. So nice to sit in the tranquil gardens, even in February to enjoy the sounds if the waterfall. The well itself is a place of true healing. Recommended for all.

A lovely amble with running water in all areas. It's a good job there are toilets! I liked all the little seating areas and thought the layout was well thought out.

If you go here expecting a beautiful garden you won't be disappointed. Also if you go here for the Garry and angel energy and the magical healing waters, it ticks all those boxes too. Locals learn that becoming a friend of the Well is a good idea. You get an online newsletter so wherever you are in the world, you... More

Such a beautiful and peaceful garden. An absolute gem hidden away in Glastonbury, worth going to over and over again. The well is very spiritual and if you drink from it, it is believed to heal all your ailments - physical or emotional, all pains and worries will be gone!

This is one of the little gems of Glastonbury- easily missed if you don't know about it. Absolutely beautiful gardens- tranquil & serene. There is a well that you can drink from which is believed to be healing and spiritual. There is a myth that St Joseph of Arimithea came and buried the Holy Grail that contained Jesus Christ's blood... More

The Chalice Well Garden is a wonderful, peaceful and spiritual place. We visited again for the recent Winter Solstice ceremony and it was full of vibrant people with great energy. The beautiful fire and warming apple drinks were fantastic on a chilly day and they gave us the energy to join in with the singing and enjoy the service. This... More

The beautiful, and peaceful surroundings. I love the various seating spots around the gardens, each one unique to soak up the beautiful, healing and calming energies of this space. Clean toilets, and nice gift shop. Nothing at all to dislike, I have visited here numerous times and always find it wonderful.

Finally I was able to visit the Chalice Well Garden on a recent trip to Glastonbury. We went on a really cold frosty morning and it was just magical. So peaceful with a wonderful tranquil atmosphere. The gift shop was lovely and cosy and the lady serving there was friendly. We hope to return next time we are visiting that... More

This is a special place from the moment you enter it. Its quiet gardens filled with flowers and beautiful plants are a perfect place to mediate and sit still for a while.
