The Official Tourist Information Site for Wells

Walking, Cycling and the Outdoors

The City of Wells and the surrounding area - the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels - are enjoyed by many visitors for the walking and biking paths and trails.

We have included several walks around Wells, including heritage trails and the Swan Walks.

We have added links to the Mendip AONB site and to the Avalon Marshes website for you to find walking routes/wildlife walks from 2 to 8 miles in length and biking trails on the Mendips and Levels. Many of these walking and biking trails are in the form of a downloadable A4 sheet which provides detailed information about the walk plus a map.

The Mendip Society is a group of some 500 like-minded people who come together in the interests of conserving and enhancing the Mendip Hills and the surrounding area, for everyone to enjoy. They organise walks most weekends - click here to find out where the next events are.
