Cavernous and set apart, in blackness or candle lit, mysterious it remains....

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.

We went in just before closing, but they were happy to stay open for us. As pagans that like to travel we visit a lot of 'spititual' places, but the atmosphere here was amazing. Dark, candle lit and echoy. The keeper on the door was v helpful offering us help to get our pram up and down the wet steps.... More

I have always loved the White Spring. I've lived locally for many years and have seen this place go through several changes. I even remember it as a cafe where I attended musical events. I have seen it completely gutted and raw, back to basics as a cave with water gushing from the ceiling. I remember too the cave in... More

I visited the White Spring four times last year (including twice on one day) and it was different every time. Spring Bank Holiday Monday was the first time I'd been able to get inside, and there was a ceremony going on, with a few people preparing to enter the pools and a (very) loud chanting sound coming from a source...

Hard to put into words, very beautiful and atmospheric. Went again today, had not been for a few years. A very healing and unusual place. Preferred it in the 90s when it had the cafe, and the faux cave shop, that was amazing, but still love it. But this is a free attraction, and not for everyone. re bad reviews,... More

This place was better than I expected it to be. There is so much history here at the springs. Back in the day this place was used for all kinds of things. Now it has two looks you can bathe in if you wish and altars to Goddesses. Now regardless of what you believe it's worth checking out as it's... More

You could be going back 1000 years and you wouldn't know it. It is not a cave, but a small temple cut out of rock where at this time of the year, voluminous quantities of water come gushing out of the spring. It took some time for my eyes to become adjusted to the dark; there was plenty of water... More

This is one of those places that could be easily missed as it is quite non descript from the outside but don't be deceived if you have the opportunity do go in and visit, I have never been anywhere like it amazingly spiritual and fascinating it should be on Glastonbury must see list. Completely awesome.

The temple was gated off....but we filled our water bottles daily from the White spring. The people gathered round were friendly and happy to explain the health giving benefits of both the White and red springs....and the ratio of the two one could drink.

A dip into another world, a magical and mystical experience. You can bath in the source, surrounded by candlelight.

I don't think I've ever visited anything quite like it. Best to keep an open mind and experience it for your self. The flooring is quite wet and a little slippy at times so wear sensible waterproof shoes.
