Wells: History and beauty in England's smallest city

Wells: History and beauty in England's smallest city

The choice of where you are going to make your next move to when the time comes to relocate your family will often come down to practicality and amenities over and above everything else that places have to offer to ensure your family have a good start.

However, if you are not restricted by the needs of your family, perhaps you are older and your kids have long since flown the nest and gone to pastures new, what benchmark do you then set when looking for your new home? One aspect you may like to focus on in order to help with a great way of life with much to see and do, can be to head somewhere which is simply visually stunning, and will make you proud to be associated with it.

Such a place will be easy to find for those who take the time to seek out property for sale in Wells. The Somerset settlement is known as the smallest city in England, given that it is not part of a larger metropolitan borough like the city of London is, and its 10,000 or so residents make it a peaceful and serene place in which to enjoy the latter times of your life.

Some of the main attractions of Wells as well as peace and quiet include its beauty, with many sites to see across the city, such as the cathedral, town hall, and even many of the older houses.

Culture will be another big part of the area and living there, and residents will find events in abundance. You could choose to learn a little about history at the local museum, or to see a film or a play at the Wells Film centre or Wells Little Theatre.

And for those who want the chance to remain fit and healthy, the city also has a leisure centre with many sports facilities, as well as a sauna and steam room.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801464253-ADNFCR
