Cavernous and set apart, in blackness or candle lit, mysterious it remains. A wonderful contrast to the sunlit gardens of Chalice Well of the Red Spring. The interior consists of three domed vaults 16ft high, with beautiful bowed floors - like the hull of a boat moored at the portal to the Otherworld. With it's constant temperature, and the sound of the perpetually flowing water, it is a unique and sacred space. Please be aware that people often bathe naked here, and we have a no photography policy. Many groups, pilgrims, and local people - from a wide diversity of backgrounds and traditions - have come to appreciate the blessings of this sacred space. So do come and enjoy the White Spring during our normal opening hours or at our regular ceremonies and meditations. We gather together to celebrate the turning of the seasons and at the full moon. Private visits and ceremonies, including baptisms and ceremonial bathing may be possible by arrangement. In keeping with the sense of sacred at the White Spring there is no charge or expectation of donation, neither is anyone paid. People often make a contribution to the White Spring for the upkeep costs and to keep access free for all. Please consider making a financial contribution if you are able to, all contributions are welcomed, but never expected.

The Temple is only lit with candles and is very relaxing. If you're adventurous enough you can take a dip in the pools. Outside, there's an outlet where you can fill your drinks bottle from the spring. The water's very refreshing.

One for the more open minded travelers among us.beautiful tranquil & delightful. The water has a taste & colour that's unforgettable ( iron oxide ) so don't be gready.

An unusual and special place. Just light enough so you can still see (but still very dark, be careful!), filled with candles, interesting people and the most amazing 'baths' full of natural spring water. Can contain nudity as some people do like to cleanse in...More

A visit to the White Spring is, for me, the highlight of any trip to Glastonbury, and I'd promised myself to mark a recent 'milestone' birthday in such a way. I had to delay it for a few days while waiting for the weather to...More
