White Spring Well & Temple
4.5
About
Cavernous and set apart, in blackness or candle lit, mysterious it remains. A wonderful contrast to the sunlit gardens of Chalice Well of the Red Spring. The interior consists of three domed vaults 16ft high, with beautiful bowed floors - like the hull of a boat moored at the portal to the Otherworld. With it's constant temperature, and the sound of the perpetually flowing water, it is a unique and sacred space. Please be aware that people often bathe naked here, and we have a no photography policy. Many groups, pilgrims, and local people - from a wide diversity of backgrounds and traditions - have come to appreciate the blessings of this sacred space. So do come and enjoy the White Spring during our normal opening hours or at our regular ceremonies and meditations. We gather together to celebrate the turning of the seasons and at the full moon. Private visits and ceremonies, including baptisms and ceremonial bathing may be possible by arrangement. In keeping with the sense of sacred at the White Spring there is no charge or expectation of donation, neither is anyone paid. People often make a contribution to the White Spring for the upkeep costs and to keep access free for all. Please consider making a financial contribution if you are able to, all contributions are welcomed, but never expected.

go with an open mind and let the water and the goddess do the rest.
beautifully laid out and well-maintained temple. Suitable for open-minded people who know how to respect a sacred space. No photography.

Wonderful spiritual place
May 2021
We visited this wonderful spiritual place in Oct 2019 and loved it. Its so atmospheric inside with pools of water and spiritual displays everywhere and wonderful lighting. Best of all its all free! Parking is limited to the street outside. You are not allowed to take photos inside. There is a springwater tap outside all year round. Highly recommended.

My favourite spot in Glastonbury. A water temple. Best visited when the well house is open. A beautiful sacred site. Full of flowing water, candles and alters. A place to bring your prayers, wishes and dreams.

I only came across this place as we started our walk up to the Tor, there was a young woman having a wash using the spring water opposite. Rather a shock early in the morning. Unfortunately the Temple wasn't open.

Healing water, magical place.
Aug 2020
The White Spring (inside) is my favourite place in Glastonbury, when it's open. Sadly it wasn't open when I visited in August, I really hope they get it back open again soon!

Sacred waters

If you're looking for magic and wonder here it is. An extraordinarily evocative place on sacred land. Great for meditations or simply sit in quietude and sip in the atmosphere. Pure healing waters for drinking and bathing.

I love this place so much, and was so disappointed that it was closed during my trip in July. ( Pandemic) in fact I love this place so much I'm planning another nine hour drive to visit it when it opens in August.
If your looking for cleansing and healing this temple is a must!

Meditation place

I can't describe how much I loved this place. Its so calming. I used the water to cleanse myself, there was someone chanting which echoed throughout the cavern. Candles give.it a magical feel, well worth visiting.

Wonderfully surreal and atmospheric - like going back to the womb
Apr 2019
A visit to the White Spring is a sureal experience and like stepping into an echo chamber of ones own mind - or indeed submersing yourself into the embrace of the womb - cavenous and echoey with water cascading across the floor. You need to plan your visit carefully as the Temple is only normally open in the afternoon, subject to availability on the part of the guardians - check the website for details and information.

There are various pools to sit and submerse yourself in if you are brave enough and can bear the cold - a wonderful experience that relaxed both body and mind - and a perfect form of meditation. If using the deeper of the two pools it is always best to notify the guardian first - and there is no need to be shy about stripping off - women and men can and do go in naked without shame or embarrassment. It's only a body after all and nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. Bring a towel and a bag in which to place your clothes as the benches and floors are of course wet - and careful as the pool floors can be slippery and uneven and dfficult to get in and out of for the more vertically challenged.

It takes a while for your eyes to adjust to the dimness and candles help, guiding you around the edges to the different shrines and areas where one can sit and gently contemplate that which is in our hearts. The spring is occasionally used for special events - to honour the different moon phases and so forth - details again on the website. Donations are not compulsory but are of course always appreciated to help keep this special place going and to hionour the guardians time.
