On my third visit to Glastonbury, I was finally able to see the White Spring, which is open minimally & randomly (always check the website for its opening hours before going, but even then you might still find it closed. I think I lucked out this time because it's August, a busier tourist season). It's an old stone building lit... More

This ancient White Spring is rich in history of Goddess and the inside is full of atmosphere, with sacred altars to pause and be in the energy of this beautiful healing Sanctuary. A tip is to check ahead of the time, either with Tourist Information, or local folk, as I understand it is opened by volunteers and so times may... More

I have visited this place for several years now, but as the spring is practically a derelict building, the owners have done everything they can within the funds they have recieved to create a place of amazing, dark energies. It does not have the same peaceful feel as Chalice Well, but I love the fact that it has shrines to... More

I have visited this place a few times over the years. Yes, it is dark and wet but the energy here is special and a compliment to the Red Spring at the Chalice Well across the road. There are alters where visitors may meditate and two pools where visitors can bathe. I have been drawn to the deeper pool at... More

Adjacent to Chalice Well / "Red Spring of Avalon" garden across a small street, there's this "White Spring" well. This place is located inside an old structure & is very dark but free; there's a water spout outside the "White Spring" for people to drink from but the place wasn't very "inviting." My wife was invited in by some guys... More

Never been able to go inside the White Spring until this year as it's always been closed when I've been in Glastonbury. However this year we were in luck! Hard to describe really; its a chamber with lots of water; presumably from the 'White Spring', a large pool, damp walls and floor. It wouldn't be anything special without the magical,... More

I can't fault this place really. It has not become my favourite place in Glastonbury. The atmosphere there is indescribable. Otherworldly and magical come some way close but you have to feel it to believe it. It is beautifully lit by candles which add to the ambience and the volunteer there was very helpful and friendly with answering questions I... More

En route to our trek up the tour we stumbled across this unusual place at the foot of the hill, an open gate to a dimly lit chamber was too tempting to pass, so enter we did. We were met with a most unusual place, with candles and flowers all around, and once our eyes became accustomed to the dark... More
