Overview
More
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 White Spring, just around the corner from the Chalice Well, has changed over the years. The café, which used to be situated on the first floor, has now gone. The main area consists of a pool, with the instruction, “Please be considerate of other...More

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

It is a such a mystical and lovely place. Love that it is open to everyone to bath, sit, play music whatever you feel like and everyone's space is respected

Run by volunteers so may not always be open, but worth checking out. It's small but a beautiful place to visit and just be in the darkness with the sound of rushing water.
