Dating back to the 12th century, Wells Cathedral stands as a fine example of Gothic architecture. Wells is the earliest English Cathedral to be built in the Gothic style and has an international reputation. The current building is a significant landmark in Somerset and the South West. The cathedral boasts a magnificent west front covered in medieval sculptures of saints and kings. The pretty Early Gothic interior is dominated by the love-em-or-hate-em “scissor arches,” seen nowhere else. Wells Cathedral is open daily and they invite all of their visitors to join any of their services and events.
