Cavernous and set apart, in blackness or candle lit, mysterious it remains....

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.

Visited last weekend loved the whole feel of the place the atmosphere has to be felt to be believed and the whole vibe of the place is warm and magical despite being cold and wet.

My parents had visited Glastonbury a year or so prior to when we visited and they were adamant that we had to go to White Spring. I'm very glad we listened to their advice and went to have a look. I don't think I have ever been anywhere so calming and beautiful, it truly is a magical little grotto. The... More

This was very interesting sort of place to go if you don't mind getting your feet wet.Not good for people who are not sturdy on their feet. Other wise it's a must and the water makes a refreshing drink.

Not what I had expected at all as I entered a very dark cave with the sound of running water, the heavy smell of incense in the air and the echoes of joyful conversations as people bathed naked in the pool.

Going to the tor, in the side road, it is located, very dark inside you don't know what are you entering, it really different and tells about the ways of living in the zone

We did not like the energy in this place at all - it felt like we had entered the portals of hell. Everything was dark and red inside. There were many naked individuals taking baths in the waters. I would not advise drinking from these waters. This place will suck your good energy. Stay away.

If you walk up the Glastonbury Tor be sure to visit this spring. Inside it's dark and mysterious and you can just imagine yourself in an ancient Roman temple to a watergodess. I know the structure itself isn't that old (it's Victorian) but the guardians of this spring did a great job in creating a sacred atmosphere. The spring itself... More
