Explore Wells

Wells is a unit of local government and a small cathedral city situated in the Mendip district of the Somerset, England, located on the southern border of Mendip Hills. The name 'Wells' is derived from the 3 wells that are dedicated to St. Andrew, one is in the marketplace and 2 on the grounds of the cathedral and the Bishop's palace. In the middle age, these 3 wells were believed to possess curative powers.

Wells is a famous tourist destination owing to its popular historical sites like the Mendip Hills, Wells Cathedral, Wookey Hole Caves, Bishop's Palace, The Church of St. Cuthbert and Vicars' Close. Wells is the smallest city in England famous for its beauty, historical heritage buildings, gardens, water features and the open spaces. It is a place that is cherished by residents as well as visitors alike.

Wells is a quaint church town, with no history of its own, no manufacturers and no great families have ever lived here. The whole theme of the town revolves around the cathedral. For such reasons, the town has managed to preserve its fascination and antiquity.

The cathedral is one of the smallest and is the most beautiful in many ways. The clear front space emphasize the way in which the 3 huge towers get in harmony with the remains of Vicar's Close, the ruins of Bishop's Palace and chapter house. The cathedral's interior is also remarkable for its inverted arches supporting the towers.
