Wells and Wessex

This is a variation of the Choral Tour of Wessex with the group staying in Wells. We accommodate our groups in a beautiful old coaching hotel with views over the cathedral and its close. We are excited to have developed a contact with Exeter Cathedral. We feel that it is one of England's finest cathedrals but, as it is a little off the beaten path, is often ignored. By staying in Wells we are able to include it in this itinerary. Concerts in Salisbury and Wells Cathedrals together with services in Romsey Abbey and Winchester Cathedral make a top class performance schedule.
