Based in the beautiful Somerset city of Wells, this tour includes an excursion to the historic city of Bath and a visit to the Victorian seaside town of Clevedon. We include a visit to Oakham Treasures, for a trip down memory lane and there will also be plenty of time to explore Wells itself with its magnificent 12th century Cathedral and the medieval Bishops Palace. Wells has a good range of independent shops and restaurants and a busy market too.
The Best Western Swan Hotel is located right at the heart of Wells and all the attractions are within easy walking distance of this traditional 15th century coaching inn. There are views over the Cathedral from many of the rooms and public areas. The hotel has lots of charm and character and offers comfortable en suite bedrooms. The hotel does not have a lift and some of the stairs to the bedrooms are quite steep, but a limited number of ground floor rooms are available on request. Rooms with walk in showers are available in the Coach House, which is a short walk from the main hotel building.
Sunday: We travel to Wells with a stop for lunch on the way, arriving at the hotel mid-afternoon.
Monday: Today we visit the World Heritage City of Bath, where there will be time to see the beautiful architecture and visit the main attractions before we return to the hotel.
Tuesday: After breakfast we travel to the seaside resort of Clevedon, enjoy a walk along the promenade and see the only Grade I listed pier in England. Later we head to Oakham Treasures, a museum full of interesting memorabilia from yesteryear.

Thursday: After breakfast, it is time to begin the journey home with a stop for lunch on the way.
