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.

Whether you're staying in Wells or the surrounding area outside the city boundaries, you're perfectly poised to explore the surrounding area - Cheddar Gorge is nearby and the caves of Wookey Hole await; you're also just a short drive from Glastonbury Abbey. The nearby Mendip HIlls are not only an ideal spot for avid walkers, but also offer opportunities for cycling, horse riding, abseiling and caving.
