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.

Such a beautiful place, we visit about 4 times a year...whenever we go to Glastonbury really. The tranquility of the gardens and colourful visitors who have often come from a long way and quietly go about their business of meditating, contemplating, plant watching or simply relaxing can't help but draw you in. A happy place...

We have been to these gardens so many times over the years for ceremonies (including our own handfasting) and just to soak up the atmosphere and connect with spirit. The pace is jus magical. We have so many happy memories visiting this wonderful pace over the years. Great flora and fauna, and superb views over the Somerset levels from the... More

Lovely gardens and good spot for a picnic lunch. Time out to meditate and leave the world behind. Don't forget to visit the white well just around the corner to top up on your water!

These lovely gardens are a nice place to relax and get some sun. I come here often for reading. In the Summer it is the best place for wadding in spiritual waters.
