Medieval architecture looms high above cobbled streets, and the lovely thing about the city\u0026rsquo;s compact size is that it makes it easy to take your time and explore the sights.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eYou\u0026rsquo;ve got to love Wells\u0026hellip;with its historic centre and a character that sets it apart from anywhere else in the UK, it\u0026rsquo;s beautiful. Quaint and friendly, with plenty to see and do, holidays in Wells are pretty much perfect for families, couples and everyone in between.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eOne day you can be peering up at the architecture of Wells Cathedral, and the next stomping your way across the landscape of the nearby Mendip Hills. To be honest, there\u0026rsquo;s a different day out to suit every kind of mood and every kind of weather, and for those meals, you should get ready to experience a little corner of foodie Heaven.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe historic streets of this gorgeously teeny city are lined with independent restaurants that\u0026rsquo;ll have you planning your next visit before you\u0026rsquo;ve even left, and we\u0026rsquo;ve even picked out some of the reviewers\u0026rsquo; faves to help get you started.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eThings to do in Wells\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThere\u0026rsquo;s only one place to start when it comes to things to do in Wells, and that\u0026rsquo;s with a visit to the ever so beautiful cathedral. Right in the heart of the medieval city, the cathedral was the first in England to be built in that distinctive Gothic style, and it\u0026rsquo;s home to one of the country\u0026rsquo;s largest collections of stained glass.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThanks to its modest size, Wells manages to feel a little bit like a village in that it has a strong community spirit and a year-round programme of events. There\u0026rsquo;s the Wells Farmers\u0026rsquo; Market which takes place every Saturday and every Wednesday throughout the year \u0026ndash; and what better place to start if you\u0026rsquo;re keen to sample the tastes of the region?\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe cathedral itself hosts all kinds of family events during the year too, including crafts and workshops, and of course the annual carol services. Over at the Bishop\u0026rsquo;s Palace, you\u0026rsquo;ll be welcome to pop along to the summer garden festival and the Artisan Winter Market.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThose of you who like to make sure you don\u0026rsquo;t miss a thing can pick up one of the official Wells Walking Tours. Remember the film Hot Fuzz? There\u0026rsquo;s a walk that\u0026rsquo;ll take you to the locations from the film., and all walking tours leave from The Crown in the Market Place.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003ePlaces to visit in Wells\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eYou\u0026rsquo;ll find Vicar\u0026rsquo;s Close beside the cathedral, and it\u0026rsquo;s another of the best-loved places to visit in Wells, and the oldest street in Europe. Thought to be the last complete medieval street left in the country, there\u0026rsquo;s something magical about wandering up and down the close, and it\u0026rsquo;s easy to imagine the vicars who once called it home hurrying back and forth as they went about their business.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eHead to the southern edge of the Mendip Hills, just outside the city, and you\u0026rsquo;ll find Wookey Hole Caves. There\u0026rsquo;s nothing like a network of underground caves and tunnels to get the kids intrigued, and there\u0026rsquo;s a brand-new chamber to discover too. The caves are famous for their Winter Wonderland at Christmastime, so if you time your Wells holiday during the winter make sure you go along and join the fun.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWells is a short drive from the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that\u0026rsquo;s the Mendip Hills, so we say make sure you put one day aside to gather the family for a long old walk. The hilltops are dotted with ancient monuments, and there are so many paths and trails that you\u0026rsquo;ll be able to pick a route that suits you and take in the scenery at your own pace.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003eRestaurants in Wells\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eLet\u0026rsquo;s be honest, one of the best things about a walking holiday is plotting where you\u0026rsquo;re going to fill your boots in between those adventures, and Wells holidays are all about friendly local restaurants that serve great food. With a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence to its name, we should start with one of the finest Wells restaurants \u0026ndash; The Sheppey. There\u0026rsquo;s a quirky feel to this pub, and the reviewers love the fact that it serves a wide selection of beers and spirits, and (and we quote) \u0026ldquo;mind-blowing food\u0026rdquo;.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eIf you\u0026rsquo;re after that perfect pit stop for when you\u0026rsquo;re doing that holiday shopping, you\u0026rsquo;ll find the Courtyard Restaurant just moments from the cathedral. Just imagine sitting on the decking with a glass of fizz over lunch, before heading back to the cobbled streets to pick up those gifts for those back home.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","Alias":"wells","MainImageLocation":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/users/adriano/2013/08/Wells Cathedral -1.JPG/carousel.jpg","PointOfInterests":[{"AdditionalImages":[],"Id":0,"Title":"Wookey Hole Caves","Body":"\u003cp\u003eSomerset may seem a quiet and tranquil county but don\u0026#39;t be fooled...deep underground you\u0026#39;ll find a series of showcaves, a mysterious river and a history laced with pagan and Christian legends.

The walk starts at Wells Cathedral, and walkers should pass through Penniless Porch and head across the Market Place. Penniless Porch dates back to medieval times, so it\u0026rsquo;s an interesting place to start the walk.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThis walk is a nice one for those keen to get off the beaten track and into some \u0026lsquo;real\u0026rsquo; Somerset countryside during a stay nearby, and with a moderate grading it should be easy enough for experienced walkers to complete in one day. One of the walk\u0026rsquo;s highlights is the views it includes along the way, so walkers will need to take their cameras for this one.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","AtGlance":null,"Categories":[],"Inspirations":[],"HotPick":false,"LocationLatitude":51.2108,"LocationLongitude":-2.64361,"MainImage":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/users/102/2014/02/somerset levels.jpg/carousel.jpg","LogoImage":null,"Alias":"somerset/wells/north-wootton-worminster-from-wells","MainImageSmall":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_1x1/users/102/2014/02/somerset levels.jpg/carousel.jpg","Locations":[]},{"AdditionalImages":[],"Id":0,"Title":"The Circus of Horrors at Wookey Hole","Body":"\u003cp\u003eNow here\u0026rsquo;s something that\u0026rsquo;ll make your October memorable: the world-famous Circus of Horrors, currently performing in London\u0026rsquo;s West End, returns to the Wookey Hole to celebrate Halloween in the infamous style that got them rampaging into the finals of Britain\u0026rsquo;s Got Talent.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eSince their first appearance at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival, the highly entertaining mix of grotesque story and some of the most bizarre circus acts on earth let them quickly grow out of the cult niche.
