Be sure to keep your cellphones off, or on silent, and refrain from smoking so as not to disturb the tranquility of the gardens and others visiting.
The garden itself is expansive and boasts eight different sections. At least an hour should be allowed to enjoy the full beauty of the area. Bask beneath the Yew trees, listen to the flow of the water in the Vesica Pool, enjoy the ancient healing pool which dates back to the 18th century, taste pure spring water from the Lion's Head and enjoy a picnic amid the seasonal flowers within the meadow which boasts a beautiful view over Glastonbury and the Vale of Avalon. This is a truly breath-taking sight, even on a cloudy day.
For those more spiritually minded seeking a serene place for meditation do not go past the Well Head and Sanctuary. It features the Besica Piscus, the ancient sacred symbol of two interlocking circles which symbioses the union of heaven and earth. Take a seat on the steps and listen to the flow of the artesian spring.
Near the exit is the Chalice Well Trust Shop which as an excellent selection of books, gifts, crafts, jewellery and cards.
The Chalice Well and Gardens are open from 10am until 4.30pm, with hours extended until 6pm beginning on April 1st through to October 31st. The last admission is 30 minutes before closing, but more time is suggested to explore the gardens fully.
