A medieval palace which has been home to the Bishops of Bath and Wells for about 800 years.
Through a stunning archway to the palace….
..which is surrounded by a moat which is home to the Bishop’s swans. The swans have been taught to ring a bell by the gatehouse when they want food.
The gatehouse seen from inside the grounds.
Through another archway and into the gardens where stands a statue of the pilgrim.
Random pictures of the gardens..
And here is a medieval privy – thank goodness for modern conveniences!
An impressive fireplace and staircase in one of the public rooms.
And a few shots of the cathedral.
