Welcome to Wells Cathedral.

If you come before the beginning of February you will find the chairs removed from the nave of the cathedral. The open space gives a sense of how the cathedral must have looked in medieval times. During January we host a series of attractive 'Promenade' concerts in which the audience is free to explore the building whilst the music is performed. The feast of Candlemas marks a movement in the Church's year ..
