Wells Cathedral
This 12th Century cathedral is the first Gothic Cathedral built, with over 300 medieval carvings –www.wellscathedral.org.uk/your-visit/explore-wells-cathedral

Staff Favourite“Wells Cathedral, the cathedral is absolutely stunning and bursting with history and architecture. You can take a guided tour, which I recommend, or just explore yourself. The surrounding lawns are perfect for a picnic although there are plenty of great pubs and restaurants in Wells itself. If you can visit on Market day it’s lovely to be able to combine the two things”. Sara

Bath
Located an hour and 15 minutes from Lakeside Holiday Park, this beautiful and historic city has so much to offer from the Roman Baths to The Royal Crescent, the most beautiful street in Britain. Marvel at Bath Abbey or visit the Fashion Museum where you will see elegant clothes worn through the 1800’s, a must if you love period dramas. Bath is also one of the locations where the popular series Bridgerton is filmed – www.visitbath.co.uk
