Tel: 01749 671770

Wells lies sheltered beneath the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills, and combines a wealth of historic interest and beautiful architecture. Wells qualifies as England's smallest, and Somerset's only city.

Probably the finest national example of early English architecture, Wells Cathedral was largely built between the 12th and 14th centuries.  The Cathedral is famed for its magnificent West Front, featuring over 300 statues and carvings; the inverted scissor arches of the nave, and one of the oldest working mechanical clocks.

The wells, which gave the city its name, are located within the grounds of the Bishop's Palace, which is still the residence of Bishops of Bath and Wells. The Bishops Palace main features are a 13th-century Undercroft, imposing staterooms and tranquil gardens surrounded by a moat.

Also of interest are Vicars' Close, claimed to be the oldest complete medieval street in Europe, and the historic market place.
