The Palace Trust, WELLS, BA5 2PDWrite a review
The Bishop's Palace is at the heart of the historic city of Wells, and was home to the Bishops of Bath & Wells for over 800 years. The drawbridge leads you across the moat, under a portcullis and through the grand gatehouse to the Palace itself and the ruined 13th-century banqueting hall. There are also 14 acres of gardens, well pools (which give the city its name), a family-friendly cafe, video guides, daily guided tours and events throughout the year.
With voluntary Gift Aid donation: £7.70 (ch 5-18 £3.30, under 5 free). Family (2ad+2ch) £18.70 (prices may change when the Palace is closed). Visitors can choose to pay standard admission prices
