An active well for over 2000 years, Chalice Well embodies the peace and solace of its unique location in the Vale of Avalon. The well and its surrounding meditation garden offer visitors a chance to reflect and drink in (literally) the area's fabled history. The well cover, designed by church architect and archaeologist Frederick Bligh Bond, represents the overlap between inner and outer worlds and symbolizes the atmosphere here. Quiet your thoughts in one of the sitting areas or take a relaxed stroll through the grounds. Don't forget to bring a bottle so you can sample the waters from this famous source. On summer evenings, enjoy poetry, music, and other performances in the candlelit gardens. If you're interested in delving further, look at the schedule of workshops and retreats.

Chalice Well reviews
After a morning of walking we went here and sat and reflected our day so far. It is very tranquil and with very few visitors it was peaceful. more »
A very lovely, tranquil place, a fair amount of walking, including slopes and steps, but if my 86 year old mother can do it then not too difficult. You can also collect some of this beautiful water... more »
Very peaceful, less than £10 for 2 adults, nice place to gather your thoughts, meditate, or just sit and enjoy the view. The well water is said to have healing properties. Bring an empty bottle or buy one at the entrance. Even the gift shop was very reasonable.
It's a Sacred site seeped in history - King Arthur, Avalion era. Also a beautiful & extraordinarily peaceful garden. Nearby is the Tor & the High street is full if Crystal shops, mythical pieces & a very good health shop.
