My plans changed quite a lot during my last week-end in Bristol as I was starting to feel very poorly so instead of going to Oxford I went to Wells with a friend from my class to see the cathedral.
Wells is a small town located in Somerset, it takes about 1h to get there by bus from Bristol.
Bus ride = enjoying the luxurious green landscapes of something, so a nice ride !
Wells Cathedral is insanely huge compared to the rest of the town. Which actually gives the town a charming vibe.
You can see it from the bus when you arrive in the city centre -if you’re sat up on the bus that it- at least no way you miss the stop.
We arrived around lunch time and decided to head straight away to see the Bishop’s palace & Gardens, then the Cathedral.
How beautiful are the swans ?
The not so beautiful gang of pigeons, which walking under you fear they will poop on you. Or at least I fear so since I was pooped on by a gull in Bath once. Worst moment ever.
Unfortunately I had forgotten to charge my camera so I had to take pictures from my iphone. I must admit I was quite upset with myself. Even more when my iPhone also died on me at 30% later. Yay.
This is probably one of the prettiest Cathedral I have seen this year ! I especially loved the ceilings. All the details inside Wells cathedral are pretty insane and so stunning.
A BIT OF HISTORY
“The Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew” is the actual name of Wells Cathedral but it’s most of the time only referred as Wells Cathedral.
This gothic cathedral construction took a little more than 300 years ( between 1176–1490) and is now a grade I listed building.
There’s no admission fees to visit the Cathedral as it runs solely on donations, so it is suggested to give £5 if possible, or anything you can give.
Wells only had a few Christmas Decorations, nothing over the top. And believe it or not, it felt so refreshing and nice since I felt constantly overwhelmed by Christmas Decorations/Festive food or drink in Bristol since the very beginning of November.
In conclusion Wells and are little gems you need to add-on your bucket list !
