The Bishop’s Palace Gardens #Historical #Cathedral #Gardens #Medieval

The Bishop’s Palace and Gardens sits adjacent to the Wells Cathedral in Somerset. It’s been the home of the Bishops of Bath and Wells for 800 years. It’s now looked after by English heritage and is designated a Grade 1 listed building. It’s been a while since we moved but we visited Wells quite a lot when we lived in Somerset. The gardens are beautiful and the Cathedral very impressive.
