Enjoy Wells Dating

The choice of venue for a memorable first date is very important. However, this should not be a daunting decision, especially if you are lucky enough to live in and around the scenic city of Wells. Despite having a population of only just over 10,000 inhabitants, this compact Somerset city provides locals and visitors with plenty to see and do. So the answer to the question 'Where to date in Wells' has plenty of answers.

Originally a Roman settlement, Wells grew around a minster church founded by the Saxons in 704 A.D. Since then, the city’s long and fascinating history is represented by its numerous historic buildings and landmarks, which help to form an especially romantic backdrop for the courting couple’s first rendezvous.

Of course, the best known and most imposing landmark to be found in Wells is its 12th century Cathedral. With the four imposing grand entrances, to be found at each compass point, its 300 medieval statues and unusual 24 hour astronomical clock face, the Cathedral grounds make an ideal meeting place. Other impressive historical landmarks to be found within the city include the nearby Vicar’s Close, the oldest residential street in Europe, the 14th Century St. John’s Priory and St. Cuthbert Church, which is often mistaken by visitors as being the city’s Cathedral!

Most first dates will include a romantic meal for two, accompanied by a glass or two of good wine. The good news is that Wells has a number of good restaurants and bistros within its ancient streets and thoroughfares. These include the Swan Hotel Restaurant, which boasts a coveted two AA rosettes for its impressive dishes cooked with only the finest ingredients. Other quality restaurants to be found in the city include Anton’s Bistrot, Brufani’s Grill Restaurant and the Café Piano. If Italian food appeals, then look no further than booking a table for your first date at Rugantino’s.

Meet at Local Venues

Once the romantic couple has enjoyed their intimate meal, they may wish to take in the fresh air walking or cycling through the stunning countryside of the Mendip Hills, which surround the city. Here you can enjoy each other’s company away from the crowds of the city, whist enjoying stunning vistas of the city and its impressive Cathedral from an alternative vantage point. Also nearby are the popular scenic tourist draws of Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge. Within the city itself, a loved-up couple may wish to stroll hand-in-hand through the impressively manicured grounds of Bishop’s Palace.

If the weather prevents such outdoor pursuits, couples may alternatively enjoy cosying up in the Wells Film Centre and enjoy the latest rom. com. The centre also screens older classic films and lesser-known productions. Those with more cultural tastes may also wish to visit the Wells and Mendip Museum, which boasts an impressive collection of local images and artefacts.

Finding the ideal venue for your next date in the Somerset city of Wells should not prove to be a problem for you. From historic attractions, to cosy and intimate restaurants, there is bound to be a place that ticks all the right boxes for you both.
