I stumbled upon this place as it's not always open so I hadn't really planned for it. But I'm so glad I visited. What a magical and powerful place. You must take your time here. Just stepping over the threshold does something to your spirit and heart. Very powerful. Slow and steady. Take it in. Sit, quietly, reflect and feel... More

when visiting Chalice Well we went to white springs aswell. A nice quiet place with some offering places. We came here for the quiet atmosphere which every time got disturbed by a singing woman. And although she sang nice, I found it somehow intruding towards all the people being quiet and peaceful.

It's dark, it's cold, it's more than a little spooky, it's wonderful. Make sure to take your shoes off and roll up your pants and/or have some shorts and something waterproof to put them in after you are done.

One of my most favourite places. It is beautiful, magical,and peaceful. A definite place to spent some time if you are near Glastonbury. Check its website for opening hours,it is run by volunteers so this is a bit unpredictable.

Well, I find the White Spring is a unique place to experience, you can't really describe it..it is more about the feeling inside. Imagine a dark deep place/cave art, with a very gentle sound of water flowing, candle light, wonderful smell of sent sticks....qualm and full of peace and water basins which are told to be healing (I never took...

Well. I can't fully explain the power of this place....apparently, the opening hours are a bit unpredictable- as told me by one of the girls at a cafe in the area- but we were lucky enough to happen to catch this place when it was open...all I can say is WOW, such a peaceful yet intense place....a must see!!

Very dark, very wet, unsure if someone was singing or if it was a recording. There were some strange goings on in one of the side 'chapels' I suppose it was, lots of stretching and hissing from some guy. Thankfully no naked people though.

Nice to see the white spring looking it such a good condition. A great atmosphere inside, with many separate shrines within. Please make sure you wear decent footwear as the only light is that of candles and the water from the well overflows and runs across the floor which is uneven in some palces. A truly magically place! There is... More

I've visited several times over the last 7 years and usually love it every time, yet this last time it somehow was bereft of its magic and atmosphere. I was very disturbed by this development. Disrespectful men bathing in the nude there (likely the only kind of bath they ever take) interrupting any sort of peace and meditation (especially when... More

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
