Lovely walking through the arch to the Vicar's Close with all the historical architecture which was so interesting in addition to the cathedral which was an extra bonus.

Next to the Cathedral and easy to miss if you haven't checked what to see. Very much a set from a Harry Potter movie.

A lovely cobblestone close of medieval buildings, the architecture is fascinating. Not to be missed if visiting Wells.

Very pretty row of houses next to the cathedral. The most complete medieval street in England. Well worth a look if you're into history or architecture.

Claims to be variously the only complete Medieval Street in Uk and is well worth a visit. It is linked to the Cathedral and many (maybe all) of the houses are occupied by students of the Cathedral music school so musical sounds can be heard drifting through the air. Entrance is free and it is quite modest in scale so does not take long.

Well worth seeing, a blast from the past and great to see no vehicles. Apparently the last medieval street in England.

Fascinating to see the old houses that look all exactly the same, extremely easy to get to, very disabled/hard of walking friendly. Good photo opportunities too

Definitely worth popping round the corner after the cathedral to have a look and take a quick photo or two. Nothing much else to do…a coffee stall inside would have been nice but maybe it’s best to keep it uncommercial.

Simply stunning row of buildings - a photo opportunity if ever there was one . Musical accompaniment from the school added to the ambiance.
