Christmas in Wells

Why not spend a pre-Christmas weekend in Wells with all the family. The Wells Market takes place on Saturday and local attractions such as Wookey Hole Caves and Clarks Village in Street will be open.

For the energetic there are many beautiful walks in the area. For accommodation why not try the hotels, guest houses and B&B’s which are supporting the reindeer parade.

We look forward to seeing you.

Rotary Club of Wells
