We never visit Glasters and fail to come here. it's a haven of peace and a place of reflection. Don't miss out, make sure you visit and take a bottle of water from the well

This is a special healing place, a sanctuary at any time of year. The energy is I am sure due to the love and care that both the guardians and members have poured into this special place over the years. The parking it is true can be a problem, but there are facilities for the disabled available, and it is not that far to walk from the town for anyone who is reasonably fit.

The gardens themselves are beautiful at any time of year, for sitting in quiet contemplation or simply watching the birds as they go about their daily lives, so unemcumbered with the troubles of modern life. The gardens offer a short but well earned respite from the day to day grind, with so many corners to explore - the well head itself, the healing pool, the meadow, which is wonderful if you stay at the retreat house for sitting on moonlit nights. There is always something going on here, yet you can always find a quiet corner to just hide away in complete solitude, this is perhaps the gardens greatest gift - the ability to completely immerse yourself in nature, and the present moment, which is of course all that we have.

A little underwhelming, but ok if it's seen as part of the bigger Glasto experience! Do it earlier and it will seem less like another opportunity to cash in on the Tor/Abbey/legend kudos.

Visited Chalice Well a few years ago. Loved it so much became a member of the Chalice Well. A very special place, many quiet spots to sit + contemplate whatever. Sample the water, look at the beautiful flowers + trees. So close to Glastonbury Tor. A good shop for gifts + books. Would definitely be going again.

Place of the Goddess, this beautiful sanctuary is a place to go and meditate quietly and to drink the iron laden water with it's distinct red colour, so therefore called the Goddess spring. (The white male spring is just outside across the road and contains mainly calcium)
Check to see if there are any special events on, really worthwhile attending one of these, There is also conference and lodging facilities for a special seminar if you book well in advance.
