Wells, Somerset, BA5 2PD
England's smallest city Wells has a secret; the origin of Wells, the ancient spring pools are found in the gardens at The Bishop's Palace. This is why people laid roots here, with the Roman occupation dating from the 400s; the Palace itself was home and office to Bishops of Bath and Wells for +800 years.

See for yourself the spectacular medieval architecture, walk beside the moat, enjoy 14-acres of beautiful gardens or a theatre show on a summer evening or catch the infamous swans ring their supper when hungry.

This superb attraction offers visitors a vibrant and exciting programme of events all year round, not forgetting the delicious home-made snacks, lunches and cakes on sale at The Bishop's Table. Shop for a gift or take home a souvenir for yourself.

Outstanding 14th-century manor house and 18th-century terraced garden. The house was built by Sir John de Clevedon in c.1320, incorporating parts of a massive 13th-century tower and great hall.

Much of the original building is still evident. Altered and added to by the Elizabethans, it has been home to the Elton family since 1709.

The house contains many striking Eltonware pots and vases and a fascinating collection of Nailsea glass. There is also a beautiful terraced garden.
