Visit to Wells Cathedral

Visit to Wells Cathedral

Wednesday 06 July 2016

A get yourself there visit to Wells for a look at the embroideries in the Cathedral followed by a tour of the embroidery exhibition “The Ornate, The Beautiful”.

We meet at the Cathedral at 11 am where you will see all the embroideries in situ and be taken behind the scenes to see embroidered alter frontals, vestments and kneelers. If you want a quiet sit down after that, there will be a FREE lunchtime concert in the Cathedral performed by Wells Cathedral string ensemble. Otherwise it is market day in Wells for some retail therapy and plenty of cafés to find some lunch.

At 2pm we move on to the Bishop's Palace where we will get a conducted tour of the embroidery exhibition “The Ornate, The Beautiful” featuring beautiful textiles from the collections of Downside Abbey and Wells Cathedral, many of which have never been on public display. You can then stay on and wander round the wonderful grounds, weather permitting, of the Bishops Palace or take tea in the café beside the croquet lawn!
