Things to Do

Somerset is a county full of unique places to visit and events for all the family. A great place to start when planning your visit is the Visit Somerset website.

Wells itself is full of hidden gems including The Bishop’s Palace, a stunning mediaeval palace situated quite literally on the doorstep of the Cathedral! With 14 acres of gardens to explore, including the beautiful well pools from which the city takes its name, the opportunity to look around the Bishop’s private Chapel, explore the ruined Great Hall and meet the famous mute swans who live alongside the moat and ring a bell when they want food, it’s a great complement to a visit to the cathedral.

Wednesdays and Saturdays also bring the Somerset Farmers Market to Wells Market Place while close by you can explore the beauty of the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Kilver Court Gardens and Glastonbury Abbey and Tor.
