You wouldn't know this was there! A charming chapel and gardens with almshouses. Very lovely and well maintained. Just be careful the paths can be very slippery but there are signs warning you of this.

Down a lovely lane, step back in time to this lovely chapel and small garden. In summer an artist works painting icons of Mary Magdelene with the Tor as background...fantastic!

Our group rented the lovely Margaret and Mary Chapel for a private goddess ceremony. It was amazing! The energy is very sacred and one can almost feel the spirit of Mary Magdalene there.

I love this little chapel. Gorgeous little garden almshouses and tiny chapel. Another of those magical places that Glastonbury has.

I love spending the time there. It's small but very nice garden, entry is free. At the entrance there is a finger labyrinth from wood for meditation. If you are lucky, you can enjoy absolute peace in the beautiful, quiet atmosphere.

Very cute little church, garden and houses a bit further up the main Glastonbury high street. Worth a visit if you haven't been before but it is very small. Free entry.

The almshouses, situated in Magdalene Street, and with a very attractive small garden, are definitely worth a visit. Possibly founded in the 13th century, they are a set of small buildings originally designed to home the poor. There is a small chapel near the entrance,...More
