Wells Cathedral, Wells, Somerset
Thousands of people visit Wells each year just to see the cathedral, and it’s easy to see why; built between 1175 and 1490, the cathedral is famous for the intricately carved statues on the West Front, and for the unique scissor arches that support the central tower. Tread age worn steps to soak up the ambience of the octagonal Chapter House, and in the North transept watch the joustling knights appear as the iconic Wells Clock strikes every quarter of an hour. Stroll through the tranquil cloisters to the café for a relaxing bite to eat.
