“Do not confuse with the Cathedral!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This lovely church is very close to the bus station and I know that some visitors go there thinking it is the cathedral. They are naturally disappointed - it is no cathedral! But it is a lovely, welcoming church with regular coffee mornings and charity events. The Almshouses (just behind the church) are lovely - do go in if you are there on an open day.
It is also the site of the village fete in Hot Fuzz!

“Hot Fuzz Nostalgia!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I stopped by here during a Hot Fuzz film locations tour.
For those that don't know it's used in the village fete scene of the film where one of the church spires kills Tim Messenger in an 'accident'. Geeky I know.
That aside, it's one of the highlights in Wells for sure and well worth checking out if you're passing.
They also have a cafe in operation on market days inside so you can check out the interior too.

“If you are in Wells don't miss this Church”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

If you are visiting Wells it is well worth visiting this large beautiful Parish Church especially the ornate painted ceiling. The font is superb as is the pulpit.

“Go and see the wonderful ceiling”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

The parish church does not have as many visitors as the famous cathedral, but it is worth a visit in its own right. The angel roof must have been repainted recently, as it is brilliantly coloured and a must-see. Pictures are available on the web.

“Magical Place”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Went to find the place where my grandparents were married, what a joy to behold the ceiling is marvelous and not to be missed. Take a walk around the church yard some of the gravestone are very interesting. All in all well worth a visit if you have the time
