Welcome to Chalice Well 

The gardens are a place of meditation and quiet reflection, a chance to leave the world behind, a pause. 
The gardens offer a respite from the everyday, a place for connection, reflection and renewal. Each area of the gardens is distinctly different – ranging from the wide open space of the meadow, to the intimate space around the Wellhead itself. Throughout the garden there are numerous places to sit and enjoy nature, the constant flow of the water, the changing seasons, and the spiritual presence which is so central to the Chalice Well. 
 
With this in mind, we ask to respect other visitors by helping us maintain the peace and quiet. Those wishing to picnic or gather in small groups are asked to do so in The Meadow, the highest point of the garden. 
 
We ask school groups, and other larger groups, to notify us ahead of their visit and also ask that you break in to smaller groups while walking the gardens. If you wish to congregate as a group, The Meadow is an ideal space to do this.  
 
Our entrance fees are: 
Adults - £4.60 
Children (5 to 17 years) - £2.30 
Concessions - £3.80 
For those wanting to carry out ceremonies or group meditations, you will need to book the gardens outside public opening hours, when you can have exclusive access. This avoids your activities being interrupted by other visitors and ensures other visitors are not inhibited by groups. You can find out more about Private Access, including the types of activities which are suitable to the gardens by contacting us at: info@chalicewell.org.uk or calling on 01458 831154 
 
If you are bringing a group and would like advice on whether it is appropriate for you to visit during public opening times, or if Private Access would be more suitable, please feel free to contact us via info@chalicewell.org.uk or give us a call on 01458 831154. 
 
We appreciate your help in ensuring the unique atmosphere of the gardens is maintained. We would therefore request that you either turn mobile phones off, or switch them to flight mode during your visit. Thankyou. 

Accessibility 

Please be aware that we have areas with uneven terrain, cobbled paths and steps. The gatehouse at the entrance to the garden is up a cobbled path which is steep in places. If the slope is too steep, call into the office and we can arrange access via a level route. 
 
Most areas of the garden are accessible with a wheelchair (a motorised buggy is available upon request). 
 
Children must be supervised at all times. 

Assistance & Guide Dogs 

We are only able to welcome Assistance and Guide dogs to the Gardens. 
 
We would like to make sure that your visit is enjoyable. If you need further information about accessibility in the gardens for your ease and comfort in deciding to visit, please call us on 01458 831154 and we will do our best to answer your queries. 
 
We hope you enjoy visiting the gardens for many years to come.
