With the Cathedral as a back drop, this view of a complete medieval street, dating back to the 14th Century, is unique. It is reputed to be the oldest purely residential, untouched, street in Europe and the symmetry, coupled with the elegant design, is truly stunning. I could continue in glowing terms but I will not do justice to this... 更多
Vicar's Close is beautiful and kind of hidden across from the Wells Cathedral. The oldest street still lived in in Europe, it's beautiful. Even the cobblestone path is gorgeous! Each garden is decorated beautifully. The visit is peaceful.
This is a must see in Wells, near to the Cathedral, this street of terraced houses that look like the day they were built and the cobbled road between them will take you back in time. Not a sign of PVC anywhere. Shame that some have not been opened to the public, would have loved to have seen inside.
Walked up here on a recent trip to Wells. On first glance all the houses look the same, however, when you look closer, you realise they are, in fact, all different sizes. The design is really quite beautiful and deserves to be preserved for generations to come
Stand under the arch for a good photo of 14th century houses, perfectly preserved. It's just a short walk from the cathedral, and a short walk up and down the lane.
