Living It Up In Wells!

I have just returned from a lovely weekend in the city of Wells in Somerset.  The destination was chosen by my mum and I gladly went along for the ride!

We had a fabulous time together, taking in the sights of the smallest city in England, eating waaayyy too much, including cream teas and delicious cakes, drinking copious amounts of tea and partaking in a sneaky gin and tonic (or two!) in the evening sun.

The magnificent Wells Cathedral!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather, it was hot, the skies were blue, the sun shone and the flip flops came out!

Wells was being shown off to us in all its glory!  It is a beautiful city and definitely a contender for the perfect destination for a short break.

It’s also where they filmed Hot Fuzz (starring Simon Pegg), so it was fun to spot the film locations (it wasn’t difficult!) around and about!

This is just a taster of what we saw – more details and photos of my trip to come!

  1. Hey…looks like a perfect weekend. I was thinking of you the other day. Wimbledon is going to be hot hot hot! Have a great time. I passed again the other day…all the shops in the village have turned tennis-crazy. The tennis club looks great. But I reckon there will be visitors at Wimbledon passing out left, right and center.
