Currently trending at Number One on a favourite holiday review site, is Wells Cathedral. A must visit if you are in Somerset for a holiday or short break.
This earliest English Cathedral, a significant landmark, was erected between the 12th and 15th centuries and has been built in the Gothic style. It possesses one of the largest collections of stained glass windows in the country. The 14th century Jesse Window, which was saved from destruction during the English Civil War, is really something to see.
