Wells is just the prettiest place to visit, and admire, be you a keen photographer or general fan of all things quintessentially English. Mentally I moved into around 85% of the houses we ambled past and literally spent the entire time giving excitable squeaks (rather disconcerting for passers by but ho hum!)
I spent a good 2 minutes staring at this next scene, thinking it looked oh-so-familiar, when Kitty pointed out that it's the setting for the film Hot Fuzz. Yarp!
Fans of pretty facades and doorways will lose their freaking minds in Wells, it's really very pretty. I'm making a mental note to return at Christmas time as I think it'll be next level awesome then. Did I just mention Christmas?! That's allowed right? I mean, there's stocking fillers in the supermarkets so I'm guessing it's publicly acceptable (although somewhat frowned upon to mention it still!)
If visiting Wells you simply must see Vicar's Close, which is the oldest residential street (mid 14th century) with original buildings surviving intact in Europe (well technically we are still in Europe for now!) The magnificent gateway and tall chimneys and Cathedral views really add to the sense of historic awe.
You might be able to tell - Wells stole my heart!
