“Step back in time...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Well worth stopping by - very atmospheric and a great opportunity for photos. Just jealous of the cathedral choristers who can wander out from their house here, across the bridge and into the cathedral for work. It's got to be better than Canary Wharf!!

Tucked away but well worth discovery. Like stepping back several hundred years. Only down side was the recycling boxes waiting to be collected..

“Next to Wells Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Really is like travelling back in time. Food for the imagination. One of those places where you really hope they might have left their curtains open, and if you were to gaze in you would witness life from many years ago.
