Overview

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.

I'm biased. I was lucky enough to meet the gatekeeper of the springs through a family member and shared with him my work, healing and awakening the Divine Feminine. He invited me to perform a ceremony here in private. I cannot tell you how magical...More

Always a great place for downtime and refresh yourself with the water and when open chillout to the running stream

Even though I’d read some negative reviews- I decided to visit with an open mind, especially given the ambience of energy within Glastonbury. I wish I’d given this a miss, not because it lacked energy; it certainly had that in abundance... What it did lack...More

Walking out of the sweltering bright sunlight into the cool, dark, but candle-lit cavern was magical. We were welcomed warmly by the lady at the entrance who invited us to bathe or sit and just 'be'. There were a couple of naked bathers and I...More

We stopped here on the way back from climbing the Tor. With a fresh water spring running outside and a bit of shade you can top up your water bottle and have a quick cool off! Inside the building is very peaceful. It's only lit...More

This is in a old building but unfortunately it was shut with metal gate so could not go in. There was a pipe trickling water onto path which you can drink from.

Enter the cool darkness and listen to the enrgy of water. Paddle or fully immerse yourself in one of the pools. Worship the green man or one of the other spirits of the place. Collect water to take home. Come and be inspired
