Easter weekend has never been extremely important to me; it was mainly about eating copious amounts of chocolate eggs and roast dinner. This year I was lucky enough to have the whole Easter Bank holiday weekend off. As well as visiting family and friends I decided to have a few day trips out, one being in Wells.
Wells is a small, quaint town in the Mendip district of Somerset. Well known for its beautiful Cathedral, and its appearance in Hot fuzz, it has to be one of my favourite places to visit on a nice day. Saturday happens to be Market day and the town is filled with an abundance of local farmers, craftsmen and food stools. You can potter around at your leisure, trying food samples, having a gander among the craft and homemade goodies and even grab some hot fresh food or a drink.
As well as Market day Wells also has a great selection of independent shops and cafes, with a few big brands thrown in the mix too you have a great variety to choose from. I personally love the charity shops in Wells, there are so many your guaranteed to find a bargain!
Don’t forget to visit the town’s main attraction, Wells Cathedral. Visually beautiful inside and out, with mountains of history and character it is a must see. The river running just beside it is great too, you can walk along side it and you may even catch a glimpse of the resident swans. The cafe beside does the best Welsh Rarebit if you have time you must have some!!
