The smallest city in England, Wells is home to only 12,000 people, and it's the cathedral that gives it its city status. The cities compact size and beautiful medieval architecture is what it what makes this city so charming; stroll along the quaint, cobbled streets to Wells Market Place, where you'll discover a twice weekly market selling a range of local goods and souvenirs.
