Wells Cathedral is unforgettable. The recognisable exterior is stunning, with its massive double towers and ornate decoration, but the interior is just as amazing. Elegant scissor arches were constructed to support the building on its sinking foundations. It’s difficult to believe how old they are because they look more modern than medieval. The chapter house and its ancient staircase are wonderful.

Wells itself is beautiful but to enter the cathedral when the cathedral choir boys are practicing is an unbelievably moving experience

Cathedral in the Mendip Hills. Contains the second oldest clock in the UK and an unusual scissor arch. Also keep an eye out for Louis, the cathedral cat!

In my opinion, the most beautiful cathedral in England. Dating mostly from around 1200, this cathedral is still in daily use, and has a calm and peaceful energy. Plan to spend more than one day looking around, as there is so much detail to see -- from the carvings on the capitals to the beautiful Chapter House. Try to get to a 5:15 Evensong service if you can.

Wells cathedral is fantastic! It is very conveniently located, in the centre of the town. You could spend a couple of hours there and still not see all that it has to offer. If you go to Somerset, don't forget to go to Wells!
