My favorite place in the UK, and one I've returned to more than a dozen times. If you don't have a car, it's a little difficult to get to (a bus from Bath -- a trip of a little over an hour -- is the easiest way), but once you're there it's easily navigable. This tiny medieval city is packed full of charm. Within a two minute walk are the 12th century cathedral; the 13th century Bishop's Palace; and Vicars Close, reported to be the oldest complete and continuously inhabited street in Europe. Wells also has several excellent restaurants (Goodfellows among them), and some charming shops. You can use Wells as a home base, as many nearby places of note (Glastonbury, for example) are easily accessible by bus or car. If you are a fan of medieval architecture, you must not miss Wells.
