There's been a lot of work done at the Bishop's Palace since I was last there. There's a brand new visitor centre, more gardens, an arboretum and more. That's much more to interest.you.
The main attraction has to be the wells (hence the name of the City). They well up (sorry!) from the deep and you gaze into limpid depths. On a calm day, a wonderful view of the Cathedral is mirrored in the water of the pools.
If you like trees, there are some magnificent specimens, particularly the tulip trees and American walnuts.
And then there's the Palace. Though you can only visit a part of it, the best is the view of it from the outside. It is wonderful architecture. Almost worth becoming a bishop!
The cafe is fine for coffee or a drink but visit one of the restaurants in town if you want lunch. All give better value and quality.
