Wells Cathedral exterior

About

Located at the southern tip of the Mendip Hills, an easy drive from Bath, and described as the ‘most poetic’ of the English cathedrals, Wells Cathedral is home to a thriving spiritual, musical and historical community stretching back nearly 850 years.

The Cathedral has an international reputation and is the recipient of several tourism awards, having recently achieved a Silver Eco Church Award.

Join a free guided tour with experienced guides, daily from Monday to Saturday, with no need to book. Special interest tours are pre-bookable, running on specific dates. The popular High Parts Tours let you walk in the steps of cathedral masons to discover hidden spaces, galleries, and chambers at height.

Free family activity leaflets are available, and during school holidays, sessions are offered for children accompanied by parents or guardians.
