The Smallest City in England

By Linda Tancs

The medieval city of Wells is the smallest city in England.  Just 45 minutes from Bath (a UNESCO World Heritage City), this historic place gets its name from the springs that bubbled up during Roman times.  Today those springs form part of Bishop’s Palace, home of the Bishop of Bath and Wells for over 800 years.  The uniquely moated palace is famous for its resident swans that ring a bell alongside the gatehouse when they want food.
