Wells Cathedral

Wells Cathedral is a cathedral for the Church of England, situated in Wells in Somerset.

The present cathedral building dates between 1175 and 1490 and is modest in size. The cathedral’s central tower dominates the small city of Wells and is a significant landmark in the surrounding area.

Wells Cathedral is a very good example of Gothic church architecture from the late 12th/early 13th centuries. Unlike many other cathedrals in England, there are several associated church buildings which have survived in tact. The home of the bishop, the Bishop’s Palace is worth visiting, as is Vicar’s Close, a 15th century residential street.

The cathedral is open to the public all year and welcomes donations from visitors.
