St. Winefride's Well & Shrine
Ranked #1 of 10 things to do in Holywell
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Visited the well and although not a catholic I found it a really interesting place and it gives people a sense of well being and tranquillity. The staff were very nice and helpful, the shop was full of religious artefacts and were mostly reasonably priced. You can also use the waters and collect water from a pump at the well. The small museum is interesting and well worth looking at, the entry fee of 80p is brilliant and most people give a little more at collection points around the site, great place.
