St. Margaret's Chapel & Magdalene Almshouses
Ranked #5 of 37 things to do in Glastonbury

Attraction details
Reviewed 4 June 2013

This is one of the more secret places in Glastonbury- it has been refurbished in recent years, and is now open most days. A peaceful little chapel and pretty garden, and it's possible to view one of the original almshouse dwellings. A few years ago it had fallen into disrepair and was often closed, so it's nice to see it open again. A lovely place for a bit of quiet contemplation.

Tucked away from the main road this is a tiny little church and gorgeously peaceful garden of tranquility, a great place to spend some time for contemplation.

A lovely, sacred space to visit and enjoy in quiet meditation or for singing/chanting. The acoustics are amazing! Wonderful energy. You'll feel uplifted after your visit.

It is quite interesting and they have restored the Almshouses very beautifully. The chapel is rather special and the place is a haven despite its proximety to the busy street outside. loved the wooden chatreuse labyrinth
