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.
