Wells may be the smallest city in England, but it certainly packs a punch, making it an ideal place for a day trip or short stay. This medieval city can easily be explored on foot and has much to offer in the way of architectural history.
Wells Cathedral, dating from the 13th century, is a marvel of Gothic architecture and has been featured in many films and period dramas, such as BBC’s Poldark. Entry to the Cathedral is by donation and free tours are available for those wishing to learn more about the building’s history.
The city comes alive for market days, which take place every Wednesday and Saturday; ideal for picking up some local produce such as cheese or cider.
