Stunning architecture in the heart of Wells: the construction of Wells Cathedral was begun in about 1175 in Gothic style. The first building phase took about eighty years, culminating in the renowned magnificent West Front. About 300 of its original medieval statues remain. Also known as the Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, this Anglican cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of Bath and Wells.
Nearby is Vicars’ Close, built over 650 years ago to house the vicar's choral. Since then it has continuously been inhabited by their successors. The close is physically connected to the cathedral and one of the most complete examples of a medieval close in Great Britain.
