This is a little gem of a place to visit in Glastonbury - lovely tranquil atmosphere, a beautiful little garden to sit, rest, meditate... the lovely chapel, and also a tiny little shop (I bought some wonderful incense).

I have been visiting Glastonbury for nine years and this is the first time I have visited St Margaret’ Chapel, having not even known it was there. A place of peace and serenity in our busy world. I visited several times. I particularly enjoyed looking at the Almshouses and sitting in the pretty garden

It is easy to miss this rather good but rather understated retreat, and historic almshouses. As we went in, I overheard a young lady quietly explain to a volunteer that this was the most peace, serene, and spiritual place she had visited in Glastonbury, and we most certainly agreed. There is an unexplainable charm, and tranquility - the very small chapel dedicated to St. Margaret ( more than 6 people it becomes quite crowded). But it is the friendly laid back and it appeared genuine atmosphere that makes this such a lovely place to visit, and in turn become part of.
The gardens are lovely, and the almshouses, have a quirky interest all of there own.
We found St Margret's was, on reflection, a true, and perhaps the most spiritual part of Glastonbury.

Whenever visiting Glastonbury, calling in to St Margaret's Chapel is a must.
The chapel is very small but lying behind it is what remains of the Almshouses.
Originally there were two rows of these houses but one row was demolished to make way for a building project that never happened. Subsequently this footprint was turned into a very pretty garden.
The remaining Almshouses, which would have been to house poor, homeless men of the parish, many of whom would have been lepers, have been renovated and furnished as they would have been when in use.
Its a poignant reminder that there is always kindness in the world even back in the days we think of as hard and cruel.
There is a little shop in the last house and there is also a room for contemplation where there is a book which you can request prayers for those who are ill.

Such a tranquil spot with a stunning small garden tended by volunteers. History of the venue is very interesting. You can let your imagination wander in the small rooms. There is a book to to write down details for someone needing healing which is commensurate with the ethos of the town overall.
Worth a visit.

Amazing objects and the people taking care of the land are doing a great job. Tremendous gardens used by the people of the day. Some of the same type of garden plants we use today.

The Garden is a work of art and the tiny chapel is full of atmosphere. Sit here quietly for a bit. When I was there, there was an art show in the almshouses and I bought a print. Just lovely.
