Vicars’ Hall

Our medieval Vicars’ Hall is accessed up some wonderful stone steps.  This historic room overlooks Vicars’ Close – a unique and very beautiful 14th Century street.   Situated by the Chain Gate and through an arch to the east of Wells Cathedral, the majority of houses in Vicars’ Close are occupied by employees of the Cathedral including the Vicars’ Choral (the men of the choir) and who have been singing the services in the Cathedral since the early Middle Ages.
