A visit to the historic City of Wells is not complete without spending time at The Bishop’s Palace and magnificent Gardens.
Detailed Overview

Lying in the heart of the City next to the busy market place and famous Wells Cathedral, your group can explore over 800 years of history and 14 acres of gardens at Somerset’s only medieval Palace. The Palace has been the home and office to The Bishop of Bath and Wells for over 800 years. Exploring this historic site will reveal tales of bold Bishops, sensational secrets and how water has shaped the Palace through the centuries. You’ll even discover the well pools which give the City its name.

During our visit the Country Garden Festival will be taking place. Experience the award-winning gardens, which have featured on BBC Gardener’s World, filled with talks, stalls, hands-on demonstrations, refreshments, entertainment, top gardening personalities, and ideas on how to use and love their gardens.
