“A welcome respite from busy-ness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Lovely as usual, garden a treat, so well-tended, and that special 'Chalice well' stillness and peace. This special place has retained its particular tranquillity for many years, and I much appreciate that.

“Lovely gardens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Well worth a visit - very beautiful all year round, lots of tranquil spaces to 'just be'.

The garden has many different areas and plants, and there's a chance to drink the well waters and even take a dip if you're brave!

“Wonderful as Always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

I have again been blessed enough to visit this oasis of peace. Today was the Thanksgiving to Water Ceremony. This was a profound and truthful experience, shared by many from all over the world.
I once again found my place in the Healing Pool, my favourite area to rest and be.
This is so much more than a visitor attraction and any visitor will gain the most of the place by approaching with an open heart. I always have.

“Tranquil but not spectacular.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

If you just want a peaceful sit, this is the place. Gardens are on multiple levels with water running throughout. However they did not strike me as anything special.

“A sacred place of peace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

If you want to find a quiet place of serenity and contemplation then Chalice Well is perfect. There are many quiet places within the compound where you can sit and enjoy the peace, meditate, read or just 'be'. The waters from the springs are said to have healing properties if drunk. Its history is interlinked with that of the Tor and Glastonbury Abbey so definitely worth a visit.
