Wells, situated at the foot of the picturesque mendip hills, is most certainly one of England's most delightful cathedral cities.
The cathedral buildings date 13th - 15th century and the impressive cathedral west front is adorned with many statues. The hallowed interior of the cathedral is an absolute joy for it has a wonderful branching staircase which leads to the chapter house and a 14th century clock.
There are many other buildings associated with the cathedral among which is the famous Vicars Close with its beautifully preserved 14th century houses each topped with a magnificent tall chimney.
Cross the cathedral green and you will find the moated Bishop's Palace where the famed Well's swans ring a bell sited near the draw-bridge for food.
All of these very fine buildings form part of one of England's largest medieval ecclesiastical precincts.
There are many other interesting buildings in and around Wells, not least the buildings which form the well known Royal Wells School of Music.
Local attractions include Wookey Hole, Cheddar Caves and nearby Clarke's Village in Street.
