Oh where the Craft would take me (UK)

Finding myself more immersed in my Wiccan studies as of late, I've been fascinated in learning about influential places, sites and grounds that hold a connection for Witches alike. Keeping it to the UK, this list is just a couple of the places I've noticed and become somewhat drawn to - A bucket list for my spiritual travels.

1. Stonehenge.

Getting the really obvious one out of the way first: Stonehenge is a famous heritage site and with wiccans, druids, travellers and the like gathering at almost every Sabbat, it's fairly common knowledge as one of the most iconic spiritual grounds in the UK. Built up of towering stones, origins entirely unknown (though many have speculated), the monument is one of the most visit places in the UK for witches to enjoy the solstice celebrations and moon phases. 

2. Glastonbury
With the festival aside, Glastonbury itself is said to be a power source for witches, coated in history and mythology. As I learnt from recently reading Witch: Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic, there are plenty of beautiful springs, spiritual sites and shops to be immersed in. 

One place in particular that I'd love to visit is the White Springs - a sanctuary of sorts. Healing springs and wells, set deep in the caves/caverns of Glastonbury. The photos I've seen are absolutely stunning and I can only imagine the atmosphere you'd feel to be there. 

There is also a Craft inspired BnB - The Covenstead, with themed rooms and walls lined with books on magick, mythology and the occult. It sounds like the perfect place to stay when taking a spiritual delve into the town!

3. Cornwall (Tintagel)
Only recently have I visited the magic that is Cornwall and although I felt a natural pull and longing to be there, I didn't quite realise how relevant witchcraft was in the area! Since leaving, I'd been researching other places to visit nearby (we stayed in Newquay) for a return visit and I have stumbled across many enchanting places such as the Witchcraft and Magic Museum, Merlins Cave and St Nectens Glen - a nature walk filled with waterfalls, animals and historical folklore.

4. Lancashire
One of the most fascinating (and important) part of Witch history is learning about the trials. In the UK the famous Pendle trials consisted of 10 people, persecuted and sentenced to death via hanging - in Lancashire! Not only would I be interested in visiting the site itself for that reason (and to see the castle) but there are also plenty of pubs, shops and tours dedicated to the hisory of the Pendle witches.


These are just a couple of the places I've been lusting after recently, I'm sure there are plenty more around the UK that I'm yet to stumble upon. Have you been to any of these, or do you have any places you'd like to visit, spiritual or otherwise? I'd love to hear about them in the comments!

With love,

If you're interested in seeing more of these places, or other places I'd love to visit - feel free to take a peek at my Spiritual Travel List on Pinterest!

    1. Aw thank you so much - it's nice to put content out again, especially content I really want to share!

      I've been dying to visit Stonehenge to watch the sun/moon circulations over a solstice, maybe one day!

  2. I loved this post! I've been reading more and more about Wiccan studies of late and I'm becoming so interested in spiritualism in general but it just seems so vast I'm a little swamped at the moment :( loved these places- I liked Stonehenge when I visited but thought it was a little busy xx

    1. Aw, honestly I felt like that for a while, it can feel a little overwhelming and like there's a lot to learn (espcially when you're busy) but I think that's the beauty of it - it's not a set thing and there's no rules. Each persons path is completely their own! If you ever have any questions, feel free to just message me honey.

      Yeah - I can imagine just how busy it is. Although I want to visit Stonehenge on a solstice I know it's going to be a much more peaceful experience if I were to go on a regular day instead!

  4. I had no idea that Glastonbury was so interesting! And as for Stone Henge, I absolutely loved it, but it's so difficult to get any peace or think things over there as it's flooded with hundreds of people. I would so love to go there for a Solstice celebration. I have been reading 'True Magick' by Amber K - I am so drawn to everything about Wicca! You should totally do more blog posts about it :)

  5. Have you looked into Avebury? It's not far from Stonehenge and it feels even more magical!

  6. Such a unique idea for a bucket list post, Vee! I'd love to visit Stonehenge too from an archaeologists perspective! 😍 I had no idea that Glastonbury was a power source for witches, that's so cool! The Covenstead sounds like the ideal place to stay! Thoroughly enjoyed this post!

  7. There's so many magical places in Cornwall �� I constantly count my blessings having grown up here. St Nectan's Glenn is gorgeous, but if you do make it down this way let me know... There's plenty other places to check out!
