Wells Cathedral

Few places are as awe-inspiring as the Somerset city of Wells, home to a remarkable 12th Century cathedral and to echoing caves at the Wookey Hole showcaves attraction, where kids can look out for the witch of Wookey or enjoy a delicious locally produced ice cream. Wells is England's smallest city, and was named after the water wells within the grounds of its Gothic cathedral.

The Wells Museum is an interesting attraction if you're looking to pass a few hours and learn about the city's history, and if you're visiting in November then you won't want to miss the annual Wells Carnival, complete with its illuminated procession.

Wells stands close to the Mendip Hills, making it a popular base for walking holidays. The surrounding Somerset Levels countryside is popular with walkers and cyclists, and you'll find a wide choice of B&Bs, cottages and small hotels in the Wells area catering for all tastes and budgets.
