    Quirky Facts

    1. 3 Wells & Big Bells
      The city (yes, despite its size, is a city, the second smallest city in England after the City of London) gets its name from three wells. One in the city and, two in the grounds of the Cathedral. The Romans built a settlement around these three natural supplies of fresh water. As well as the wells (huh?!?), moat and famous swans, the cathedral has huge bells, some date back to the 1700’s, the largest bell weighs almost 3 tonnes!
    2. Bell Ringing Swans
      Swans live on the moat around the Bishop’s Palace and in the 1850’s the Bishop’s daughter taught the swans to ring bells for food. The tradition has continued through ages and the bell ringing swans are loved by visitors. So much so that the swans have become an integral part of the town’s identity. In 2012, 5-foot swans were decorated by local businesses and stood around the city. They were later auctioned raising over £100,000 for local charities.
    3. Hot Fuzz
      The movie starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost was filmed almost entirely here. The film’s director, Edgar Wright (who also worked on Sean of the Dead) grew up in the city. It’s also had screen time featuring in an episode of Dr Who and The Libertine with Johnny Depp.
    4. Clocking On
      The Great Clock in the Cathedral was the oldest continually working mechanical clock in the world. The medieval timepiece was built in 1391. It had to be wound for 1 hour (about 800 times!), 3 times a week and for 90 years was done by 4 generations of the Fisher family, but when the last Keeper of the Great Clock retired it was converted to an electric motor.
    5. Oldest Street
      The city also contains the oldest residential street in Europe, Vicars Close. Another major tourist attraction, the close actually tapers by 3 metres at the furthest end to make it appear longer.
    6. War
      It’s hard to imagine this tranquil location being at war, but it’s actually seen two. On August the 4th, 1642 the city was surrounded by the New Model Army during the English Civil War, who amassed 2,000 men, 150 cavalry and laid guns on three sides. The Royalists within the city escaped and the Parliamentarians used the cathedral to stable their horses and for firing practise. In 1685 the cathedral was once again under attack during the Monmouth Rebellion. Rebels smashed windows, damaged the font, stripped lead from the roof to make bullets and once again horses were stabled inside damaging the floor of the nave. The rebellion failed and in a single day at the Bloody Assizes court, 500 men were tried and a large number sentenced to death.

    The historic city really is one of the jewels of the South West. It offers great access to explore the best of the county, with sites like Glastonbury Tor and Wookey Hole nearby and several pretty villages (and country watering holes) to enjoy. While it might hold city status, Wells has something of a village feel, there are events throughout the year that bring the local population together and also some wonderfully unique traditions and quirks that just add to Wells’ charms.


    Glad to be different, it wears its eccentricity with pride, from the bell ringing swans to the Annual Wells Moat Boat Race (Oxford vs Cambridge it ain’t!), there’s much to enjoy. The Bishops Palace hosts regular events such as movie nights, live entertainment, murder mystery nights and more. You’ll find plenty of great places to eat and drink, excellent independent shops and a leisure centre with a swimming pool, gym and cycling studio.
