Built between 1175 and 1490 Wells Cathedral has been described as “the most poetic of the English Cathedrals.” Set in the medieval heart of England’s smallest city – Wells, it is the earliest English Cathedral to be built in the Gothic style and has an international reputation.
The historic City of Wells is a medieval city with its history going back to Roman times when there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble up here. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop’s Palace.
Wells is the smallest city in England with about 12,000 inhabitants. It can call itself a city because of the famous 13th century Cathedral.
