Wells

Wells Cathedral, Somerset

The Cathedral City of Wells is unofficially the smallest city England, with a population of around 10,000 people. Despite its small size, Wells has one of the most impressive and historically important Cathedrals in the UK. Built in the Gothic style, the structure dates back to the 12th century. Inside can be found the astronomical clock, thought to be the second oldest in England, the first being located at Salisbury cathedral, 45 miles to the East.

By the Chapter House of the Cathedral, across the road is Vicars’ Close – claimed to be the oldest, untouched residential street in Europe. The Close is a bit of a hidden gem often missed by tourists and is certainly worth checking out.

To the South of the Cathedral is The Bishop’s Palace. The Palace is a moated collection of historical buildings and is the residence of the Bishop of Wells and has been for over 800 years. The Palace is open to the public daily and has beautiful gardens.

The streets of Wells are rich with diverse, and interesting independent shops, cafes and bars. Wells also lives up to its name somewhat. You will see many small streams of water running through the city’s main streets. Unlike the iron rich spring water of Glastonbury, Wells springs are high in lead and are not suitable to drink.
