Area Overview

A medieval city in the county of Somerset, Wells lies at the foot of the Mendip Hills and is famous for its Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace. It is known as England’s smallest city, and although the peak tourist season is during the summer, it remains a popular destination all year round. Temperatures during July and August reach 21°C, with winter temperatures falling to around 1°C. The city’s stunning location and proximity to Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor and Bath, means that there is plenty to see and do throughout the year, and it is a popular place to stay for either a short break or a longer holiday.

Things To Do in Wells

  • Wells Cathedral: Beautiful 13th century cathedral with its famous mechanical clock, and one of the largest collection of stained glass in the UK.
  • Bishop’s Palace, Moat and Gardens: With bell-ringing swans, an arboretum, Garden of Reflection and Community Garden, in addition to the ruins of the Great Hall.
  • Wookey Hole Caves: Home of the legendary Witch of Wookey and a 19th century paper mill with a Victorian Penny Arcade.
  • Cheddar Gorge and Caves: Cliff top gorge walks, abseiling activities, caves and the Cheddar Cheese centre, plus lots of pretty cafes and tea rooms.
