    A walk along one side of Vicar's Close and a return down the other side is a walk into history. The buildings are ancient and well preserved and still occupied now.  more »

  • This is supposed to be the oldest european residential area from all over Europe. They say that this area was built in 1348, and the constructed houses remain original.
  • Vicars used to occupy these historic houses.

Where to stay in Wells

Consider a hotel or B&B in the town center, which circles a Gothic cathedral. Accommodations near the Market Square are also within walking distance of the town's attractions. To save money, consider a cottage farther away from the center with a scenic view of the city.
