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.

Our group did a private meditation after closing, which was arranged in advance with the keeper of the springs. It was phenomenal and the perfect setting for a very sacred meditation. It is very well, so bring some waterproof shoes. Also, no pictures or digital...More

I am a very spiritual person and this place is a congregation of assorted low life urinating outside, begging and drunk. I have seen this over a period of years and it is very superficial. Go to the Chalice Well gardens if you want real...More

It's a real MUST, if you want to feel the atmosphere of an ancient shrine: dark, wet, magic. Illuminated with candles, the cave-like inner space was fantastic, you hear the water trickling into the pool.

A very special Goddess Temple with a wonderful atmosphere. You can bathe in either of the pools at any time of year and people do. Most people bathe naked so that’s something to bare in mind if visiting with young children. It’s quite dark inside...More
