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

Magical, great accoustics. my friend began to hum very quietly and it sounded like an angelic choir. I looked around for a few minutes to determine the source of sound and realized it was right near me.

It was nice to see the new doors that have been erected and this is also a sacred place. The water runs down from the Tor and it was open so we could go inside.

This could be a lovely contrast to the Chalice Well with its mysterious dark womb like edifice. Unfortunately my 18 year old was a bit taken aback when a completely naked man appeared round the corner. Definately showing off and just made the whole visit tense so be warned! They should have clearer signs .

I loved this place! I last visited some years ago before it was all changed, and now it is just spectacular. The energy generated by altering the architecture and the water-flow is astonishing. It has beautiful new wrought iron gates, too, made by a local blacksmith who helped with repairs after recent vandalism. The intensity inside these springs is transformative... More

Well, it's a spring in a building attached to the roots of Glastonbury Tor, it's GOING to be cold. The White Spring (and the Red Spring across the road) have apparently never dried up (wait until they start fracking the Mendips, I am sure that will change. Anyway, the White Spring - calm, healing, and chilly! Side areas to sit... More
