One of the smallest cities in England is known for its spectacular cathedral. 

Wells, Somerset, England


  • Wells’ rich medieval roots are everywhere to be seen in the city's architecture, particularly in its intricately carved 12th-century cathedral.
  • The cathedral has played a starring role in many a costume drama, most recently in Wolf Hall starring Damian Lewis.
  • Nearby you’ll find the Bishop’s Palace which has stunning gardens, perfect for an afternoon stroll.
  • The people of Wells are passionate about their food, so a visit to the weekly farmers' market is a must. You’ll also have the pick of dining options, including some fantastic Italian restaurants thanks to the city’s historic connection with Italy.
  • Located on the southern side of the Mendip Hills, it makes a great base for rambling holidays.
  • This Somerset city is around 3 hours from London by a combination of bus and train.
