Welcome to the Chalice Well

Chalice Well is one of Britain's most ancient wells, nestling in the Vale of Avalon between the famous Glastonbury Tor and Chalice Hill. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and orchards it is a living sanctuary in which the visitor can experience the quiet healing of this sacred place. For over two thousand years this has been a place where people have gathered to drink the waters and find solace, peace and inspiration.

At present we work with the theme of 'Many Paths, One Source' to welcome all people of goodwill to the gardens throughout the year. We also mark 'the wheel of the year' at regular intervals with events of celebration, silence and meditation, and conversation. This includes an evening programme of music, poetry and performance throughout the summer months in our candlelit gardens.

We also have limited opening hours on the first Saturday in June each year, when we hold our annual Companion's Day. On Companion's Day the gardens are open to the public between 3.30 and 6.00 pm, with last admission at 5.30 pm. You can find out more about opening hours and entrance prices on the Visiting Chalice Well page.

Details of our upcoming festival 'Exploring the Heart of the Celtic Spirit' in June are available on the festival website. You can also visit individual event pages by following the links below.
