Our new cathedral Tower Tour will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the origins and history of our beautiful cathedral. Explore hidden spaces in the walls, roof and tower. You’ll be rewarded, weather dependant, with spectacular views over the city and the surrounding countryside*.

  • Why build such a large Cathedral in Wells?
  • Why is it so important in architectural terms?
  • How much has changed over eight centuries?

This unique, fully guided tour attempts to answer those questions and more! It lasts 1 hour, for ages 10 and over and places are limited to 12 people per tour.
