Living in Wells

Beautiful Somerset

Wells is big on history and you’ll enjoy having the Cathedral, the huge Cathedral Green and the Bishop’s Palace to show your friends and family. Just below the Mendip Hills – home to the famous Cheddar Gorge – there’s also picturesque countryside on your doorstep too.

The Ebbor Gorge is less well known, but the panoramic views from across the Somerset Levels are spectacular – with Glastonbury Tor and all the way to the coast near Western-super-Mare in sight.

Easy access transport and your very own local airport

On the A39, which runs between the M5 near Bridgwater and Bath, Wells also has an excellent, and popular, bus service. Plus, for travel by rail, Bristol Temple Meads offers journeys across the UK.

And when you want to getaway, Bristol Airport is a very convenient half an hour’s drive away.

Family-friendly amenities

An easy city to get around, small yet perfectly-sized Wells has a wealth of well-known commercial amenities, a picturesque high street and an open-air market. There’s also plenty of green space and the city benefits from its seasonal tourism, plus the old Market Place hosts a weekly market.

Including the famous Cathedral School, there’s a great choice of primary and secondary schools here for growing families. Strode College in Street, just the other side of Glastonbury, also provides further education courses and has a great reputation.
